    Shouldn't you have included choices like "commentator," and "analyst"? Why such restrictive labels? (As though the answer weren't obvious.)

    Okkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy, so we're questioning the validity of Beck, asking if he's just an entertainer, and you cite The Daily Show, as a source?

    Which side of Alice's looking glass are we on, I wonder.

    No, it's funny that you refuse to concede the point and continue to pretend your hyperbole is valid.
    Why are you posting here, if "the left" does not listen?
    Btw, you have as yet to make a "reasoned critiques of their policy initiatives." lol

    People don't like when people belittle the opposing party in an incredibly immature manner. This comes to mind. http://www.debatepolitics.com/us-par...alization.html
