1. Ron Christie's Grand parents forgot.......
to teach him history, what a jealous little man, and part of MSNBC's
problem on ratings.

3. Christie is lost without his precious talking points
Al did a good job of peeling away the layers of talking points and revealing the rot that lies within.

4. I don't like Al's style
I like Al Sharpton's politics just fine. But I can't stand his interviewing style. If you're going to invite a jackass right wing jerk to your progressive TV program, let the jackass right wing jerk talk himself into trouble. There's no need to shout over him, it's easy enough to debunk and ridicule him with calmly presented facts. We've got facts, morality, and decency on our side, for the love of dogs; how hard can it be to win a debate with a moronic piece of shit like Christie?

Seriously, every lefty network pundit out there should be forced to take lessons on how to destroy your opponent from Rachel Maddow. Because she keeps her cool, is well-informed, and is super articulate, she makes mince-meat out of jackass right wing jerks and does it in a manner that shows our side's superior reasoning and intellect. And doesn't just showcase our ability to shout louder and interrupt more frequently.

Lawrence O'Donnell -- this goes double for you!

5. He did a fine job...
To me...He didn't let Christie spew his lies and walk over him. What else do you want? That's how you treats those idiots. They do it o us... Time for us to get tough and play with the same tactics....

6. If allowed, Christie will talk right over the top of you

Al didn't let him get away with the boneheaded talking points. He literally called them, 'your robotically spoken talking points,' Kudos, Al.

8. I like Al's style.
He doesn't suffer fools, especially fools like Christie. If he had let Christie keep talking, Christie would have yammered through the remainder of the segment (just like Michael Steele does on Chris Matthews' show). Nope, keep him on the subject and don't let him get away with lies.

The difference between Al, Lawrence, and Chris -- and Rachel -- is that Rachel doesn't have on these bottom feeders. She doesn't waste her show with anyone who just trumpets talking points. Why anyone wastes their time with Ron Christie or Michael Steele is beyond me. Can't MSNBC find some thoughtful, objective Repubs these days??
