That MedHead! He's ripped a page straight from the Hannazi playbook with the "let me answer you with a question" move.

I'll keep listening while I troll around awhile..

Medved is batshit crazy. I hadn't heard the guy in years. Now I remember why.

Nah, he don't come off as over the top as our local boy Bill Cuntingham.

That guy's an ASS!

The problem with these types of debates...same with O'reilly, Hannity, Matthews, Olbermann...everyone talks over each other and it drives me crazy. It should be more like defense v prosecution and we are the jury. Allotted time, make argument with pertinent facts & information, allow time for counter with facts & information...closing arguments. And for Christs sake, if someone brings up a fact that you didn't know about, say that. You would sound a whole lot smarter just saying "you know, I didn't realize that was the case. I'll have to take that into consideration & possibly rethink my position." But everyone has to be right all the time.

'Twas a lively debate and thanks to Ford for posting. I can see why one could have a lot of faith in Thom...He's quite the advocate of a liberal point of view. Sharp guy with a quick wit.

Medved covered the party line, good on fiscal stuff, weak on social issues...Pretty typical overall. A worthy adversary though.

A good debate....Need more next time, maybe a Libertarian in the mix?
