I don't think I have heard so much FUD and Bullshit in one hour in my life. Whatever credibility Rushie had when he began [and he was very good in the first few years] has been ducttaped, raped and thrown in the basement.
Didn't you say you read the transcripts from his shows?

I appreciate the more nuanced views on offer in this thread. Jay serves a very real purpose in this forum. Admittedly I've not been subject to nearly as much of his antics as have others here, but I certainly know he can be irritating, and I agree that he's smart enough to know quite well what he's doing. But look at all the purposes he serves. Via regular trolling responses he indicates the intellectual aridity of his p.o.v. By keeping everyone in touch with the latest in neocon thinking via regular links and pastes, he saves us all the trouble of reading right-wing rags. By parroting the favored talking points about the 'liberal media' he provides ample target matter for us every day. And last but not least, by being omnipresent and resolute he confers a real esprit de corps upon his opponents, who band together in a way that only genuine opposition will sustain.

And, of course, as TK noted recently, he inspires us all by showing how much punishment one man can take and still keep swinging. Wonder how he'd fare in Gitmo. No, just kidding.
