Schlemiel Watch: If Michael Medved's show is the "number one talk show for politics and pop culture...."

... what the hell can possibly be the "number two show on politics and pop culture?"

Or is that just another puerile and meaningless slogan from this endlessly soporific schlemiel? I swear there are some days when listening to this guy I think, "Is this being directed and produced by Mel Brooks?"

Your Say

I too find Medved annoying. He is a little too pleased with himself, he is so decent and moderate in his tone, not like the rest of us knuckle-draggers.

He was the only talk radio guy who actually wanted McCain. 'nuff said.

I heard him saying that we should not call Obama or his policies "socialist", when Michelle Bachman used that term. Rhetorical overkill in his view.

M-E-D; M as in milqutoast....

@Darrencardinal "decent and moderate in his tone" - You forgot the "rimshot" tag.

I listened to MM daily for several years and his shows on history are awesome. His conspiracy days are awesome, for what they tell you about conspiracy people. However MM seems often to take a position just to be contrary to the trend. He also is incapable of recognizing a political opponent has anything but honest intentions.

Like most conservative radio hosts, once he convinces himself that some dangerous liberal tactic is dangerous and beyond the usual pattern of the game, he thinks that proves the dangerous liberal tactic will therefore not happen, except the liberals don't play by the rules and they will "deem it passed" or break the rules and call you stupid for not understanding how breaking the rules for the first time in 100 years really is playing by the rules.

I've dropped MM for better shows. Mark Levin Show is free, commercial-free, and available by podcast. Frank Gaffney's Secure Freedom Radio is free and available by podcast. Dennis Prager is available by subscription and is quite educating, although he takes the Larry King approach to guest author's books (I don't want to read it so I ask what the audience would ask). DP is more like a rabbi/philosopher most days and he has the best understanding of the Left from his intensive study of Soviets/Russia at Columbia University.
