I've read a few blogs expressing how appalling it was to see Dr. Phil on Meet The Press this past Sunday. Make no mistake, I'm no fan of this clown (recently skewered in TNR), however I did watch his appearance and one thing was clearly evident: he was refreshing when compared to the usual pap and say-nothing I hear on such news programs. In a relative sense, he had more to say that could at least be considered meaningful by some than most of the politicians that sit there and say much without really saying anything at all. I found it to be quite revealing that the group of people that could manage to make Dr. Phil look and sound substantive would of course have to be our gutless, read-between-the-lines, parsing representatives in Washington.
