Each show starts with a countdown of how many days left until the election, just in case anyone missed the reason why this travesty suddenly replaced the politically neutral Sam Donaldson talk show on Clear Channel stations across the country about a month ago...

That, in turn, represents an illegal use of soft money by an avowedly political group to influence federal elections.
