3. She is an amazing woman.

I spent a little time with her both times I went to Crawford when Cindy Sheehan was there. I don't claim to know her but it was certainly an honor and a very interesting conversation.

4. She was fantastic during the interview and clearly an exceptionally bright person.

I think she represents the anti-drone argument particularly well.

5. Did you accuse her of hating Obama just because she disagreed with you on the issue?

 

No, of course not, this is your livelihood, this is how you get your cred, however little that is.

But get you on a political chatboard, an anonymous one at that, and you feel free to berate people as Obama haters whenever they disagree with you and Obama on policy.

Sad, truly sad.

Perhaps you should read out some of our exchanges today on the radio Oh, that's right, that would make you look bad.

6. You continue to prove my thesis that it's not about the issues for you.

As for the interview, you will have to tune in to hear the results.

7. How am I proving your thesis,

 

In fact, my very record disproves it.

But I know you didn't accuse Benjamin of hating Obama, as I said, your little bit of cred and your livelihood depend on your show.

Perhaps I should send a link of our exchange to Medea, just to show her what you really think when you are off the air.

9. Because here you have followed me to another thread to attack me instead of discussing the issue

That is what it is about for you. The issue is secondary, if you even care about it at all.

11. Wait, whoa, what?

 

You originally attacked me as hating Obama because I criticize his policies in regards to drones and such. How is following you attacking Obama?

Sounds almost like you're stating that anything I post is an attack on Obama, or something like that.

Your logic is faulty at best.

12. Is your show available

after it records? I am in rehearsal during the time of your show. Not terribly literate about doing all this stuff but is it available anywhere after? I would really like to hear it.

14. You bet, it's available to listen in perpetuity after the event.

In fact, the best way is to podcast it to iTunes. To do that (of course you have to have iTunes first) you go to http://blogtalkradio.com/lesersense and click where it says iTunes about midway down the page on your right.
