    I am very happy with the Matthews/Sharpton/Ed/Maddow/Lawrence/ lineup.    

    I vote Democratic because I am a woman with self-respect , who rejects bigotry of all kinds, subscribes to science, believes in universal health care, embraces unions, and endorses smart internationalist foreign policy. Twitter: @HawaiiDelilah

      was speaking for?

      note terms like:

      'I'
      "MY' family.
      "I want'
      'I don't want'

      First person singular.  Possessive, in one case.

      but I'd like it even better if they didn't all rotate the same pundits ALL THE TIME (including Klein, Melber, Ball, Wolfe, Finney, etc) They're fine commentators, but I want some new blood . That's what makes Up! and MHP so good-- they bring in actual experts among the pundits.

      echoes of each other. Same stories covered from the same point of view.

      I usually watch Mathews, some of Sharpton and Lawrence (also Joe in the morning because of guests and also get an look at the other side in a fairly nonaggressive atmosphere).

      I love Maddows interviews (when she does them), but when she explains something, she speaks to us like were freshman in high school. Repeats her points  several times. I usually get it the first time round and I'm not a poll-sci graduate.

      It’s the Supreme Court, stupid! Followed by: It's always the Supreme Court! Progressives will win only when we convince a majority that they, too, are Progressive.

        She's crazy smart, well researched, teaches me things I didn't know before and is charmingly goofy sometimes--- but MY GAWD I really don't need a lead-in to the main message that takes as long as the message itself.

        Mr. Tigerdog, who respects her greatly, is so annoyed by it that he refuses to watch her anymore. Just the sound of her voice intruding into his sleep when I'm watching her with the sound down low will wake him up and make him grumpy. I kid you not.

        "The thing you should know, the very most important whatever, the great big top line thing of something, the very very very most compelling whatever that makes this so very very very VERY astounding is..."

        Yeah, I got it with the first THIS IS IMPORTANT reference. Please move along, Rachel, please just get to the point.

        And that's from someone who loves her... :)
