I haven’t had a back-to-back Top Scrooge(s) yet, however, Opie and Anthony are making a strong push.
Last week, they won This Week’s Top Scrooge(s) dis-honor by not only “joking” about raping Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice over the satellite air waves, but making crude sex comments about Laura Bush and Queen Elizabeth as well.
They followed up a few days later with a very luke warm apology aimed at “public officials”. I proclaimed “let the Apology Games begin!”
Well, apparently Opie and Anthony, whose full names are Anthony Cumia and Greg “Opie” Hughes, could not even pull off the apology for more than a few days because yesterday they played the Victim Game. The poor ol’ jocks can’t understand why all the fuss and lamented the state of radio and what they perceived as excessive reactions to comments made by themselves and other radio disc jockeys.
Now, XM Satellite Radio suspends the on-air perverts for 30 days.
Why am I not surprised? I mean about Opie and Anthony’s lack of remorse. They still don’t get it. They are still deep in denial over their negative attention disorder – an addictive pull towards bantering in filth to gain approval.
Where can they flee next? First, it was FM radio that no longer would accept them. Now, even satellite has a problem with them. My buddy, Steve, recommended they could find a home in Outlaw Radio….I don’t even know if such a thing exists…but is it possible to broadcast from the sewer?

Fleeing to the satellite waves, radio jocks Opie and Anthony reach even lower
