Please do not let links and videos "speak for themselves," you need to give us a short summary and your opinion. Frankly I don't know what you are talking about.

I think there's something to be said about the ignorance of condemning a man just because he doesn't buy into your metaphysical theory.

It has nothing to do with his beliefs- or lack thereof- but of his presentation method, which is ridiculously obnoxious at best.

I honestly think that Bill Maher, Billy O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, that one lady who dressed in a mini-skirt and then sayed Hollywood hates family values, Hannity, Huckabee, and other right wing fanatics are all crazy. Once I was looking at the political books in a bookstore, and a lady said I should read O'Reilly. I remember I was just awestruck, I can imagine how that went.

Michael Moore though, I don't agree with all he says, but his principles are something to be admired.

Why do you threads always include some derisive slander or another?, "disgusting", "freeloader", "idiot".

It discourages people from taking you seriously.

Rush Limbaugh isn't crazy. Try listening to a few of his shows and you'll agree with me; the man is actually very insightful sometimes.

I'll promise to listen to 2 1/2 hours if you promise to read one of Michael Moore's books. My pick. Deal? I'd love that kind of thing to happen on DDO.

You forgot Rachel Maddow. I sometimes watch her show for laughs and giggles when I'm feeling down.

It's a reflection of my metaphysical value judgements.

Btw, "freeloader" is not derisive slander. What would you rather have me say? "Person who does nothing but is still equally helpful to society." Come on with your political correctness BS.

Oh yeah, she is funny to watch. Her show does have some good stuff on it though sometimes, I have seen it several times.

Ya gotta love the way she says "Republicans." It's almost like every time she says it, a devil stabs her with a pitchfork.

I'll say this about Rush/Hannity/Any other commentator. It can't be easy to spend hours, every day, constantly talking about politics, trying to be fresh, entertaining, and insightful.

Perhaps sometimes he can be insightful, but he also can be crazy.

"Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire-breathing, four-eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane?" Limbaugh suggested to his listeners.

I forget where I heard this said, but it was put quite well by someone- "The difference between Bill Maher and Rush Limbaugh is that Maher's fans know that he is an a**hole."

I've already seen several of his movies and I watched the Daily Show regularly a few years back. I used to like the Daily Show, but watching it lately has become painful.

No, because I've already given him a chance by watching his movies, which were filled with blatant lies and misinformation.

So I will miss the opportunity to hear some of Rush's propaganda. What a shame. Seriously, some of his books are insightful and hilarious, and not offensive to anyone unless you are a conservative Republican politician or an unethical CEO.

The difference between me and you is that I've already given Moore a chance, you havn't even given Rush Limbaugh a chance. I watched two of his movies and they both distorted the truth, so why should I read his book?

'Cause its funny!

I have a family member who routinely criticizes Michelle Obama for her taste in things. Is this the kind of crap that Rush has on his show?

Could you at least try one of his books that has no political attacks and just praises the troops in Iraq for their sacrifices?

I'd rather not; books take a lot longer to read than it does to watch a video or a movie.
