Penn Jillette hosting Larry O'Donnell's show?

Except for a few issues like the war on drugs, the Iraq War and pro-choice, I'm not really seeing where he is much of a progressive.

2. Agreed

I've seen a few episode of his show, and he is on point about 25% of the time, the rest of the time he's just plain wrong.

4. Found a link

He's not a real progressive - he seems to be a libertarian (and an atheist, a real no-no) but I think they could fit him in on msnbc on a Sunday or Sat....

6. Screw that guy, using pseudoscience and faulty logic to discredit ideas he dislikes.

Just because I happen to dislike a few of the same ideas doesn't mean I want to see them challenged using methods at least as bullsh!t as what they claim to be exposing.

I'll never forget his...umm...brilliant...take down of the Americans with Disabilities Act. What a tool.

7. He's a fairly straight libertarian.

He's also a skeptic (science!) and an out atheist, both good IMHO.

But his libertarianism is coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs. He is no Lawrence O'Donnell.
