I Love Lawrence O'Donnell
Tonight on MSNBC's The Ed Show, political commentator Lawrence O'Donnell served as Ed Schultz's substitute anchor.
First, someone please tell me why the decidedly goofy Ed Schultz has his own show and Lawrence O'Donnell does not. Ed's a likable enough guy, but he's too blustery and loud for my taste.
Having said that, Lawrence O'Donnell is exactly who the lefties and progressives need as a man who's not afraid to stand up for our side.
He's articulate, he's fast on his feet and he's absolutely fierce in confronting bully rightwingers who are accustomed to mowing down those with whom they disagree.
He's got a distinguished demeanor, an acute intellect and an encyclopedic knowledge of politics and political history.
I have seen him demolish rightwing gasbags with dead certainly, causing them to stammer and sputter like an old Kia filled with cheap gasoline.
It would be easy to imagine him as a Senator or Congressman, but I prefer him as a commentator because he can say what he wants without catching hell from any goofy conservative constituents.
I'm a pretty good debater, but I would be quaking in my sensible shoes if I ever had to go up against O'Donnell in any political debate.
He's absolutely the best media advocate we have, and he deserves all the praise we can give him.
If you have time, please send your compliments to the top at MSNBC.
