    with the possible exception of Avlon and Cain, every guest has to be an established expert in their field.  They need to have either held office, served in the military, published books, worked in the field, taught in college, etc   He WILL NOT have the inane round-table of professional opinion staters that MSNBC recycles through all of their virtually identical shows.

    No one comes on just to hawk their newly released self-published e-book or to discuss at nauseating length the minutiae of that day's White House Press Briefing.

    He's made the analogy that normal talk radio is WWF; his show is MMA.

      Especially on this point:

      You're right about Avlon and Cain; they're the exception to the rule. Nevertheless, I enjoy listening to them discuss whatever the topic of the day is. Especially when they're both on together: good debate/conversation always follows.

        from his guests.

        He had David Frum on a few months ago in his old time slot and Frum actually said a lot of things that made sense.
