  •  Chris should switch to decaf (6+ / 0-)

    Otherwise, his show is a breath of fresh air on cable.  He generally takes the intellectual high road -- his show might be compared to CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS in this respect.

      FS is the ultimate Villager - he will editorialize a middle on every issue, however tortuous the logic, to preserve his reputation as a Very Serious Person (tm)

      This makes him much worse than an honest conservative.

        is generally better at keeping debates focused on the crux of issues, without getting lost in the periphery.  Sure, Zakaria is CFR personified.  His editorialized "middle" is a bipartisan view, which, I suppose, may sometimes be as logically tortuous as any partisan view.  But why must everything be seen through the lens of liberal vs conservative -- Democratic vs Republican -- us vs them?

      i think hayes also talks too much.  the show may actually work better with him talking so much, b/c he explains and frames things very well, but it just seems weird to have him talk so much even though there are 4 guests.
