Question: What's worse than classical music?

Answer: Listening to Rep. John Shimkus (R - Collinsville) bloviate on the importance of classical music.

Okay, okay. So classical music ain't that bad. I cannot say the same, though, for Shimkus' speech Tuesday before Congress urging his colleagues to stop the sale of St. Louis' only classic music station KFUO-FM.

Yes, Shimkus is fighting the good fight. But good God, halfway through his drivel I expected Chuck Barris to jump out from behind the podium and gong his ass. Take a listen for yourself here.
