Neal Boortz is the top rated radio personality on AM 750, an Atlanta radio station. He is a libertarian, and he kicks Rush Limbaugh's ass. Go to http://boortz.com/ and find the RealAudio link to hear his show from 8:30 to noon during the week.

Calls himself the Talkmaster. He used to be an attorney. He is proud of his insensitivity. Actually a pretty decent guy, he does charity work, and talks tougher than he really is, IMHO. His show is sometimes funny, and sometimes infuriating. He tends to elicit strong responses from people, be they good or bad. He is one of the less dogmatic of the current crop of radio talk show hosts. Tends to go for very logical answers to questions, and generally elucidates his thought process which led him to a particular conclusion. He is a proud libertarian.

Other stations have tried to put people up against him over the years, but no one can beat him in the Atlanta market. Dr. Laura is poised to be the latest victim, joining people such as Sean Hannity and The Kimmer. He gets a lot of participation from his call screener, Belinda Skelton, and his sound engineer, Royal Marshall.


addendum October 6, 2002:

Neal has revealed himself to not be a libertarian in any sense other than being a member of the party. He supports pretty much every aspect of the War on Terrorism, including bombing civilians. He even went so far to say that he would sacrifice all 21 million residents of Afghanistan to "preserve our way of life." That doesn't speak much for his adherence to the whole "non-initiation of force" thing.

Concidently Neal Boortz is also often pointed to as the force behing making Georgia as close to a Libertarian stronghold as possible. In the 2000 US presidential elections, Libertarian Party Candidate Harry Browne recieved 1% of the vote, and kept it close enough in Georgia to make the state too close to call for over 5 minutes, which was unheard of as Georgia is really a Republican stronghold.

  2000 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS - HARRY BROWNE
=============(Popular Vote)===================
CALIFORNIA - 40,263 (Nil Percent of State)
GEORGIA    - 32,221 (1% of state)


His website is http://www.boortz.com and he keeps his program notes every day at http://www.boortz.com/nealznuz.htm

He also often refers to himself rather holier than thou (not because hes a libertarian but because hes a talk radio host) as "The High Priest of the Church of the Painful Truth", he also paid the tuition for a girl in Georgia to go to private school who was expelled under a Zero Tolerance policy for having a Tweety Bird Keychain.

One of my favorite Boortz quotes is "You know, I should do this 24 hours a day, with the right kind of drugs I could do that."
