125. He was calling for socialized medicine on his show
A few weeks ago -- and this is the guy who pimps for the drug companies -- he was calling for UHC. I've also heard him speak out (rant!) about racial profiling and the injustice that poor people receive within the criminal justice system. He's pretty left-wing.

Besides beer on Friday nights, my biggest guilty pleasure is watching Montel and Dr. Phil while I grade papers. I'm kind of afraid of getting my man license revoked :)
