This USA Today story about what Finebaum’s audience has been doing with itself while he’s been off the air is every bit the classic you might expect, but this quote is the topper:
“Paul has got the best persona out of anyone I’ve ever seen, including Rush Limbaugh, and you can quote me on that,” said Jim from Tuscaloosa, a longtime Finebaum caller who asked that his last name not be used because of past run-ins with other listeners. “He’s outstanding. Has gravitas.”
Gravitas? Jim from Tuscaloosa, that word… I do not think it means what you think it means. But thanks for the knee-slapper!
