1. I may not look like a raving lunatic from the right wing swamps of hate radio but wait for it.

3. I've never listened but he is touted by folks on that side as the next William F. Buckley.

 

We'll see.

4. Buckley?

More like a buttoned-down Alex Jones who knows how to read.

6. They've been searching for the illusive next Buckley for a decade now. Still haven't found him.

 

I doubt Levin is it either.

The problem is, contemporaneous Republican/Conservative positions and talking points don't lend themselves well to an intelligent argument.

I've debated a few folks who I had previously debated on conservative media in an independent fair forum and it was a bloodbath. I ran all over them. Outside of controlled circumstances, the vast majority of those folks either cant handle a debate or their positions are so ludicrous they can't defend them.

Buckley could handle himself in a fair debate and had positions that didn't sound like they should put him in the looney bin. I dont agree with his positions but that's where he was.

7. I was, of course, joking.

He's no where as stuffed with his own need to displace anything not resembling himself as Jones.

But he's also a far cry for Buckley. Maybe mid-way between these two poles.

He does has a pretended erudition, but Buckley's was based on actual learning and thinking.

9. Yes, look at what's happened to George Will.

Anyone with half a brain and willingness to be an observer of truth and facts is no longer welcome in the GOP.

5. He has an irritating whiny voice

Listened to him for 5 minutes wasted my life those 5 minutes.

and dredged up this character.

10. M.L. continues:

"I'd tell you and everyone else Happy Thanksgiving, but it's not in my nature to be happy about anything."
