    Matthews is the only one with political experience ( but tainted with talk show commentary), and Coulter's experience in law would almost qualify, except I don't think it is in her nature to even bother arguing substantively.

    As such, I think your list is pitifully weak.

    My idea for a deathmatch still stands. In addition I would prefer a three way debate (pro-warfare/anti-welfare vs pro-welfare/semi-anti-warfare, vs anti-warfare/anti-welfare) Eric Erickson (sp?) vs Chris Mathews vs Lew Rockwell/Lawrence Vance/Justin Rainmondo take your pic

    So comedians can't be well-educated about politics unless they get a tv show on a news network? They can't provide an entertaining debate?

    Comedy Central has employed one entertainer that has far better political credentials than your entire list combined: Ben Stein.

    Combine South Park, and there's probably been more political intellect on Comedy Central than all of the major "News" Networks combined,

    Yes, ironic - isn't it? I've caught Fox getting really pissy over what Stewart says. Funny - the accused non-news channel taking a comedian too seriously in the news department.

    Of course, Jon Stewart and The Daily Show have a Peabody Award - while none of these "journalists" do.

    you'd be hard pressed to find a talking head with better academic credentials than Coulter. Did it ever occur to you that she says stuff to rile the weakminded up as part of a plan?
    Her evil master plan of completely lacking any substance and utterly dismissing anything that anyone else says?

    What kind of plan is that?

    She's a right-wing rabble rouser and nothing more. I can pretty much guarantee you she's made more liberals even more liberal than she has converted anyone to thinking like she does.

    She has the credentials, no doubt. She uses them simply to make money off of people who agree with her. It was really working for while. Still works for a few (her sales of her last book were WAY below her previous). But it does nothing for either conservative issues nor for American politics in general. She lowers every debate she enters with her use of childish language.

    Yet that comedian with a comedy show does a lot better job with political commentary and reporting than most other "news" places. And people like Coulter have no place on the list either. She and some of the others are not political analysts, but political propagandists. There's nary an intellectual, coherent sentence which escapes Ann Coulter's lips.
