Denis Miller is worth watching for once
He is talking with katrina, I do not know what her last name is

No screaming and Denis is actually letting her talk... something
fundamental has happened, or is happening

3. Yes and they were actually civilized
with each other, I never stop there, I did.

They wre talking about how we need a far more civilized market place of ideas and throwing names is unhealthy for our democracy. He was actually listening... he never does

He is still an ignorant prick, but... something fundamental is going on

10. She roars! She is smart, she has emotion, she is smart.
And I can't believe she sat down with that jackass. (Oh, she's brave, too.) I'm sorry that I missed it, but I don't do Dennis. Still, I'm glad that if she did appear there, she held her own and it was successful. She is mighty, mighty. I love to see her matched up against Coulter.

2. Why?
My tv and I parted ways when it decided to commit suicide by being thrown out a window.

Actually, I can't bring myself to watch that. Details?

6. Puh-leez! The prick just thinks he's being chivalrous by letting her talk.
Miller thinks he has a moral code he lives by...that's what he tells himself. Part of that is this faux chivalrous crap with women.
Nothing is going on here. He is thinking about stupid shit while she talks. He is not "listening".

7. The last few times I've flipped by
He has seemed much more moderate.

Apparently the ratings you get by appealing to the fringe right aren't nearly as good as he thought they would be...

I still don't trust him but the show is almost tolerable now. He's still not nearly as funny as he was 6 or 7 years ago.

8. I think he has sensed a sea change...
and wants to run with the fox and hunt with the hounds.

In other words, Bush is looking worse day by day, and it may be better to start appearing more "lib".

Miller was never funny to me.

9. Just can't watch this creep on principle.
When I flick by, and the guests look interesting, even compelling, I must flick on, sorry. He's the least worthy thing in TV waveform, and I have my beautiful mind to consider.

Charlie Rose, Sen. Rockefeller etc.

(I love Katrina when she gets fiery. :) )
