A slice of Alan Colmes' great radio show

I don't think there's a better call-in show of this type. If there is, I haven't heard it. He just puts everyone on, especially the opposite point of view. Gives them airtime. Replies to their questions or challenges in a mostly civil and evenhanded way. An amazing amount of callers sneer at him and voice epithets like "Liberal" and "Pussy" and "Fag."

Whatever. On TV, Colmes comes across as a little geeky (which in my world is a plus) but on the radio he's in command of a really great, wide-ranging conversation that ranges from ridiculous to profound.

Use controls to start the segment.
