SWMBO, or She Who MUST Be Obeyed: (Mrs. Boortz, natch)

Yes, the term "boogers and haints" was coined by the late Georgia Rep. Ted Hanson
to describe displeasing, disgusting and even despotic items hidden in legislation.
"Farding" is a word derived from the French; it means any kind of  'face painting.'   It's usually used to refer to a woman applying her makeup, something Neal and the rest of us hate to see a woman do while she's driving.  So from time to time Neal will mention it on the air.
"Mipping and mupping" is radio industry slang for what someone on the air is doing when not speaking in any clear or understandable manner.  The term comes from the sound you get when playing a broadcast  tape after it was erased improperly ("mip mip mip mup mup mup").
And "puddin' stick" is a mountain term for instigator, often referring, as in Neal's case, to a mischief who deliberately brings up a very touchy controversy (like evolution), then steps back to watch, grinning like a satisfied troublemaker who successfully "stirred the pudding."

"Sales weasels" are the people who sell the time for all the sponsors' commercials on the radio stations and networks.  After all, as old sales managers like to say, "Nothing happens until somebody sells something."
The term "Tango Uniform" is the DOD, FAA, FCC, etc. approved way of saying the letters "T" and "U" in 2-way radio communications. The approved phonetic alphabet is also used by police organizations, where "Tango Uniform" most likely originated.  "T.U." of course, stands for "Toes Up" (the way anyone beginning his eternal celestial dirt nap is presented in a casket or, uh, on a morgue slab). 
Media Integrity: DOA
The entire approved phonetic alphabet is as follows: Alpha Bravo Charlie Delta Echo Foxtrot Golf Hotel India Juliet Kilo Lima Mike November Oscar Papa Quebec Romeo Sierra Tango Uniform Victor Whiskey X-ray Yankee Zulu

"Urban Outdoorsman" means hobo, bum, homeless person, etc.

"People often get racism mixed up with bigotry or prejudice.  We need to get our terminology straightened out.  We obviously have racial problems that need solving.  The first step in solving a problem is to identify it.  If we keep mis-identifying bigotry and prejudice as racism well never make any headway" -- Neal Boortz, here

"You CAN NOT judge previous generations by today's standards.  Today Mark Twain is called by many, a racist.  By the standards of his time, he was a social liberal.  Even Teddy Roosevelt was a social liberal at the time, but he accepted as fact that idea that Caucasians were inherently superior to all other races. That makes him a racist in the CORRECT definition of the term." -- Neal Boortz, here

"Racism is a belief in the inherent superiority of one race over another." -- Neal Boortz, here
Bigotry: definitions here: # 1: the state of mind of a bigot  # 2: acts or beliefs characteristic of a bigot 
Bigot: definition # 1 here : a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices 
Prejudice: definition # 2 a (1)  here: preconceived judgment or opinion 
Prejudice, n. A vagrant opinion without visible means of support. (Ambrose Bierce, The Devil's Dictionary, c. 1911)
Discrimination: definition # 3 here : Treatment or consideration based on class or category rather than individual merit 
"Racism is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism.  It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man's genetic lineage -- the notion that a man's intellectual and characterological traits are produced and transmitted by his internal body chemistry.  Which means, in practice, that a man is to be judged, not by his own character and actions, but by the characters and actions of a collective of ancestors." -- Ayn Rand, here
I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. -- Martin Luther King
"You cannot cure racism with more racism." -- Edwin A. Locke, here

"Save me, oh God, from people who have no sense of humor." -- Ludlow Porch
