    I'd buy into that.

    And no, I don't consider my IQ level all that high. Then again, mine is in a split anyway...that's why I was given a label.

    This American Life does it for me every Sunday (and normally, NPR bores me to tears).
    I like that show too, but sometimes I find their political segments something to tolerate rather than enjoy.

    Yes. Seriously, though, if you like Segal, make time to watch Kick Ass. You will love it. I promise. Do it for Catz, Turtle Dude.

    I think he exaggerates for effect. He may believe 80% of what he says, but he adds in the 20% to maintain a level of drama that will keep his listeners engaged. It's like a soap opera.

    I don't know what your split is, but you're highly intelligent. I can tell from your posts. I REALLY enjoy their thoughtfulness.

    Higher verbal, lower performance scores on IQ exams.

    I more likened some of the segments, especially promotional videos used by both Hannity and Beck (do they have the exact same directors or editors?), to sports promotional videos that are supposed to get you amped up.

    Beck, himself, I saw as a mixture between a coach (chalkboard) and a Preacher.
