Jason Lewis comes out swinging

Jason Lewis (weekdays at 5:00 pm on 100.3 KTLK-FM) returned to the Twin Cities afternoon drive-time airwaves on the FM talker yesterday. "Now where were we?" began Lewis, as if the nearly three years since he left his number-one rated show on AM 1500 KSTP was only a dream.

Typical Jason, he pulled no punches. The whip cracks from his signature Blazing Saddles theme had barely faded out before Lewis blasted the Twins and Vikings stadium deals, free college tuition proposals, the forfeiting of energy independence in ANWAR, profligate government spending, and the No Child Left Behind Act — "and that's just the Republicans!" he exclaimed.

"I'm a lifelong Republican. I believe in the platform of the Republican Party," said Lewis, "Now if only we could get the elected Republican leadership to believe in it too."

On his homecoming broadcast, Lewis hit Minnesota's conservative base like a bucket of cold water to the face. After the initial shock, it feels good to be awake again.

I'll bet Governor Pawlenty of Tax Increases isn't particularly happy to have Jason back. ;-)
