Birchibald "Birch" T. Barlow is a right-wing conservative talk show host on the radio station KBBL. He also has a show on Fox News.


On air (and presumably personally), he is a radical conservative, highlighted by his book, Only Turkeys Have Left Wings. His on air rantings are intentionally engineered to be controversial and to rile up the audience, in order to convince them to call, as does many talk back radio hosts.

On his radio show, he declares himself to be "the fourth branch of government" and "the fifty-first state".

He took part in the world's tallest human pyramid record attempt.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

Birch Barlow is a parody of American talk show host and political commentator Rush Limbaugh.

He has also been a customer at Marge's prescription drug-laden "yard sale", a reference to Limbaugh's Oxycontin addiction scandal.[1]
