Beck and Olbermann

Since I'm always responding and never contributing by posting original threads...

Here's one from Psychology Today.

Not an end all be all, just one man's opinion on the Dem/Rep wars.

a little teaser, you say?

"My point in today's post is not to take an ideological position but rather to argue for the banality of the entrenched positions of both camps. It is remarkable to see the inability of either side to recognize any valid points in the other camp's position."

I like the progressive part because I just feel like being part of evolution

It would be good if he realized that one is a satirist that makes fun of all other Media shows, left and right.

It would be interesting to know how much he actually watched any of the shows. I have seen at least three of them cross party lines and smack the other side when it was well deserved. [I don't count Stewart as he does it as part of his routine]


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

"Glenn Beck and Keith Olbermann Are Two Sides of the Same Coin."

Yes and no. Sure, each is rabidly partisan, but with an apparent 50 point IQ spread separating them, it isn't difficult to surmise who comes up 'heads'...
