Has anyone noticed an increased feistiness with Thom Hartmann lately?
I love Thom Hartmann's insight, but one of my few criticisms of him has been that he's sometimes too gentlemanly and not assertive enough in refuting his nutball rightwing guests. But lately, it seems that he's been more vigorous and less "Mr. Nice Guy-ish."

Anyone else notice that?

1. I have, and I welcome it.
He can dust anyone who comes on to oppose his views. His views are accurate.

3. He was definitely yelling at someone about a week ago
He really lit into Dinesh D'Souza for his stupid column about Michelle Obama. I thought :wow:

5. Yeah, it's a good example of "righteous indignation"

I'm glad he's expressing it when it's no longer possible to remain dispassionate. Like somebody said, what he says is truthful & accurate. And 7+ years is a long enough time to have patiently kept his cool the way he has.

Maybe he's just "mad as hell" and he's "not gonna take it anymore"!
