Robin Williams On Sarah Palin: 'It's A Trick Question.' Plus, Lou Dobbs' Presidential Ambitions

I've found myself watching (and preferring) Chris Matthews over Olbermann lately. The latter is great. But Matthews is interesting for a change of pace. One thing Matthews does that Olbermann doesn't is that he invites opposing points of view on his show. And although I've seen a number of progressive blogs complain about Matthews on various points, you've got to admit, he excels at confronting the wingnuts and shredding them in head-to-head confrontations.
Rachel Maddow also excels at the latter.
With the lineup of Ed Schultz, Matthews, Olbermann and Maddow, MSNBC has put together a tremendously informative, thought-provoking, and entertaining block of programs. We're in a bit of a golden age of progressive TV, I believe---but I fear it won't last. We should enjoy it while it lasts.

Haaa---Robin Williams and Jon Stewart are two who really cut to the chase.

Marc, I actually prefer Ed, Keith, and Rachel over Matthews, but you're definitely correct to say that he doesn't shy away from, and can definitely handle (and shred), wingnuts like Michele Bachmann and that whole crowd of loonies. MSNBC is truly a great newstalk network these days!
