Anybody read Mark Levins new book? Picked it up tonight, only one chapter in, and I'm blown away. Why can't people like Levin run for office?

I got a gift certificate for Christmas that I've been planning to use to buy it. I've heard really good reviews on it.

I can't stand to listen to him talk over people and scream and yell into the microphone. He is intolerant of points of view that aren't his own, and hangs up on anyone who disagrees with him. Calls others names, generally acts like a child. Hey, it's his show he can do what he wants with the air time. I've listened to him off and on over the years, we agree on many things. I even read one of his books, but he is an asshole. Maybe it's just his on air personality.

I would have thought you would like him? He follows the constitution as it was ment.
Yes he's an asshole on the air because 99.9999% of the people that try to argue with him are wrong. You can't dispute facts.

The guy is brilliant. But has no people skills.

I love it when he tells a liberal call to "get off my phone, moron" Or "dummy"

Yeah, he lost all my respect when he sided with Jeffrey Lord and called Ron Paul a neo-liberal. His love affair with Lincoln is another sore point for me.

If you are unaware of it all, it is explained here....
