    I used to think he was funny way back when he was on ABC, but since moving to pay cable, he has evolved into a hateful, ranting lunatic. He’s now the liberal version of Rush Limbaugh.

  • NotRUSH

    Yeah, but at least he’s easier to follow, and doesn’t trail off like the Drugster. Must be nice not to need Oxycodone to work.

  • CinCin

    At least you can hear the option of both sides, that’s where he is different and extremely talented.

    Just thought someone should know at the BM productions, when Ron Christie is a guest, we change the channel. I am sure he has a clansman outfit in his closet at home.

  • Elroy

    Funny no. Thin skinned, argumentative little boy.
