Thought this would be fun since there is a thread going about liberal radio hosts.

I like the following (in order):

Dennis Prager - Brilliant. I wish someone from the left would debate him about ANYTHING. (Particularly dream about him debating Al Gore about global warming....to bad Gore is such a chicken he will debate nobody as he has proclaimed the debate is OVER!) Prager such an intelligent, thoughtful person. (He and Mark Steyn are the 2 smartest people in the media today, IMHO. Nobody wants to debate these two for good reason.)

Michael Medved - very good debater. Smart and fun to listen to. His holiday shows about historic events are just fantastic.

Laura Ingraham - smart and funny. She does harp sometimes. Nothing to do with her being a woman....she just keeps repeating the same points too much.

Rush Limbaugh - Just started listening to him recently. No wonder this guy has such a following. He is REALLY good at what he does. He rarely comes off as mean spirited...an amazing ability. That guy that does the song parodies is soooooooooooo funny. Funnier than anything I've seen on the Colbert show. Way funnier.

Sean Hannity - I have given this guy a lot of chances to win me over and finally in the last couple of months he has. I give him credit for the Rev Wright expose. What I didn't like about him....simplistic and repetitive....got this story about Wright out and this may be the one thing that eventually does Obama in. Also, he is very pro-American and while I once thought this was an act, I have changed my opinion and think he is 100% genuine....and he is very polite to people that call in and disagree with him.

Dennis Miller - Love his humour. He does get a bit obscure with the pop culture references, but I still like him a lot. He's always polite to even the wackiest of the left wing wack-a-doodles.

Hugh Hewitt - a bit dry, but the guests are pretty good.

I've tried listening to Savage and what I took away was "this is a routine". Same with Glen Beck...and who is the guy who is always kind of outraged? Darn, can't remember his name, he's on during the night. Neil Boortz? I guess that's the name. All that angst turns me off.

I do listen to the left side of the dial. I love to hear exactly what the oppostion is thinking. I even agree with a few things I hear, though it's rare. For instance, I heard, I think it was Sam Sedar (sp?) talking about how Bill O'Reilly was despicable because he was blaming that teenager that had been kidnapped by the pedophile guy...saying he COULD have run away. I thought that was disgusting and I agreed with Sedar.

I can't say I think any are "good" but Maddow sounds intelligent and has a pleasant voice. Mike Malloy is a total lunatic, he is going to burst a blood vessel from that silly outrage routine.

Oh, and Kennedy (don't recall his first name)....that voice. Ughghghgh. If you can get past that horrid voice and actually listen to his content you will just be amazed. Boy is he pushing victim hood.

Ed Schultz has a pretty good radio persona, but he doesn't say much. Guess he and Randi Rhodes are the stars of lib radio. That's not much star power.

Liberal radio is not very entertaining...bottom line. Randi Rhodes gets an e for effort but she is such a mean spirited harpy it is hard to listen to her. When Al Franken was on, I would listen because I just couldn't believe how unbelievably sh*tty his show was and his attempts at humour were down right embarrassing.

The thing I really think is lacking (other than real talent) in left wing political radio is that they rarely have the opposition on and even RARER do they take calls from the other side of the fence. I've heard Randi Rhodes say that it's because "they" control the air waves so they won't give them any more time....but this makes for boring radio...and it makes them look like HUGE CHICKENS.

What about you guys? Who do you like?

Oh, Mahi Rushi for sure. He is so funny and as he says knows liberals and their agenda like "every inch of his glorious naked body".

I mentioned before, I have been on his show 3 times. Almost got in wed but couldn't hang on.

I also like Walter E. Williams.

Don't care much for talk radio, but I do like Dennis Miller. He woke up and seen the light.

Personally, I like Mike Church. His stuff is so insane, that I really can't take him serious much of the time. His references to the constitution started me down the path where I'm at today, though. Wilkow's pretty good too, but many times I find him too intense. I really don't even consider O'Reilly a conservative anymore, more of a populist.

Mark Levin is conservative (libertarian?) syndicated talk show host out of New York. He is very sarcastic and "in your face", but is right on about the issues.


The Mark Levin Show

Wow! 3 times? That is very cool.

You know when I started to listen to him (after that Harry Reid debacle) I was actually pretty surprised at just how talented he is. And I remember being kind of shocked at his little "racey" comments, like about his bod, how he goes out with liberal girls for "you know what", etc. I thought he was going to be all preachy, but he is anything but. And he's soooooooooo smart and quick witted. I guess I sort of bought into all the propaganda about him being some religous, uptight, fascist tool of the neo-cons.

And when the lefties refer to him they always put down his fans as being "sheeple", "dittoheads" and doing nothing but spouting off his daily talking points. Well, guess I'm a sheeple....because I'm a big fan and listen to him a few hours a week. Guess I'm a dittohead, because I agree with a lot of what he says...and someone pls answer why it is a bad thing to repeat legitimate questions of the oposition to hear their answer? I don't care where a question came from....if it's a good question answer it, go on record and don't be a chicken!

Who is Walter Williams? Is he Armstrong Williams brother?
