Poll question: Did Al Franken make the right choice changing the name of his show?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. I hated the name of the show from day one.
I think the shows on Air America should be presenting the liberal point of view as a primary source, not merely reacting to right-wing radio. I hate the "dittohead" segment Al has on all the time.

2. Like any good comedian, Al Franken knows
That if you keep using the same joke, it stops being funny.

4. Yes, why give O'Reilly more publicity?
Now that AAR is getting of the ground, the show should strive to move forward on it's own. :)

5. Chambers Johnson who coined the term "blowback"
will be Franken's guest today.

Interesting thing, the other day Franken made some glowing noises about Allawi in passing. Today, he seemed to be more hesitant, but still hoping Allawi was a good guy, it seemed (I don't know how he woulnd it up, a phone call interrupted). Having to "win" in Iraq is the same as winning in Viet Nam. Win what?
