Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

I love love love this man.

Eugene Robinson



Every time he appears on the MSNBC shows to talk about his latest article, or to give his opinion and insight into what's happening in DC and around the world, it is an utter treat. He is a pleasure to listen to because he is so intelligent, and doesn't he doesn't carry water for anyone. And I love the constant grin with which he delivers every line.

Eugene is an editorialist for the Washington Post. Thanks for being so smart and cool, Mr. Robinson.

Recent article written by Robinson:

5. Intelligence mixed with a beautiful smile

It's a winning combination. I always feel calmer and more optimistic after seeing and hearing him speak. He has a great sense of proportion--so that he doesn't get his panties in a twist over every little thing like so many pundits, just to razz up the viewers. I love this man, too.

He interrupts everybody because he's kind of excitable.

7. Eugene floats my boat too

Did you know he wrote a book about going to Cuba? It was great and has insights into the mind of a younger Eugene, I especially remember his writing about these amazing female singers, I'd seen them perform as well but Eugene saw so much more

But when I'm lucky enough to see this guy on TV I always enjoy it.

He's a smart and classy guy and I wish there were more like him!

He's wise, warm, and has a beautiful voice. He's also one helluva journalist (Pulitzer Prize winner) with incredible depth and insight, and a great sense of humor to boot.

Kudos to Eugene Robinson!
