[FIXED] 175 The LEFT Show – Fred Phelps is Dead [FIXED]

[The problem with the audio file has been fixed. Please, to enjoy!]

One hundred and seventy five episodes, ladies and gentlemen! The only thing that would have made this better is if Melissa weren’t so concerned with being employed and eating and all that!

So, the 175th episode of The LEFT Show found us in a celebratory mood, and then, like Christmas, Fred Phelps died, and it was time to don our party hats! I really have no hesitation what so ever about crowing when a truly evil person dies – good riddance to bad trash! There is literally nothing I could do, in celebrating the death of Fred Phelps, that could possibly sink to his level.

This is the show, folks! All this, and another round of The LEFT Show presents, The LEFT Show’s GOP Jesus Wanker of the Week!

175 The LEFT Show – Dead, dead, dead!
