Sumpter: Gassed Up on Obama



When last we talked to Salt Lake City-based talk-radio host Jim Sumpter, his show was syndicated to 20-odd stations nationwide. Now, he's on over 70 and expanding (locally, he can be heard on K-Talk 630 AM, weekdays 11 a.m.-1 p.m., with a late-night repeat), and his "My Take" video commentaries have been picked up by (America's only real news source or tin-foil hat emporium, depending on your slant).

In these recent "My Takes," Sumper explains the futility of "Manchild of the Universe" Barack Obama's plans for the auto industry, then drops knowledge on the real answer: A 100-MPG Hummer developed right here in Utah! Hey, whatever it takes to keep us off (gasp) public transit.
