I don't care for the kind of attack that the ruminator made against Tucker, or even the Matthews bulldog comparison. I have no problem with cutting ideas to shreds. Cuts on physical features (botox is fair game), speculative talk about how someone surely was a nerd in high school, animal comparisons, that kind of thing is just crappy and made crappier when there is no substance. I think it's been several years since Tucker wore a bow tie, btw. Thumbs down for the piece.
I was only half listening when Tucker was on Hardball, but it seemed to me that he put Matthews in his place for making fun of the way McCain was moving around the staging area during the debate. McCain's severe injuries he received as a POW don't allow him the kind of flexibility most of us have. I think Mathews looked ashamed, as he should have.

I've always enjoyed Tucker (and Chris Matthews).
Tucker is smart and articulate with a surprising range of views.  
I've read that he's discriminating enough to savor some of the most wonderful unhealthiest delicatessen meals one can enjoy.
Reuben sandwich, crisp dill... hot hot hot coffee....
He's a mensch!

The FBN link only helped to inflame my Cablevision Derangement Syndrome.

Who is that guy who attacked Tucker?
A pitiful piece of writing.

I was glad to see that BOR skipped the TV Icon segment tonight. Also very happy to see the Culture Quiz segments gone. The show is better off without those, his strength is in political and social commentary and he should advance segments that compliment that.
