John Zieglar Thinks We’re Stupid

The former KFI radio host has a new website, www.howobamagotelected.com, where his premise is Obama voters were stupid to have elected him and that the news media didn’t do their jobs.  And since KFI’s signals boomed well into the OC, I’m sure readers will remember Zieglar’s “work.” The Orange County Register might agree with his…
