94. At times she can be entertaining, but other times she makes me cringe
I am probably even further to the left than Randi Rhodes, but when I hear a caller who disagrees with her call in I always get really upset with her. She just screams at people without giving them a chance to even finish their sentence. Now there are perhaps times when that is appropriate, for example if it is a completely rude caller or someone who is trying to dominate the conversation. Too often however that is not the case, the caller is trying to be polite but she just screams at them. We are not going to win the debate if our spokespeople are so obviously trying to shut people out of the debate. We need someone who has the ability to make the right-wingers look like idiots by making good arguments against them, not someone who merely screams to get them to shut up.
