Mike Malloy is often interesting and gratifying in his aggressively candid and well thought-out attacks on Republicans, neo-Conservatives and corporatists. But he often lapses into virtual fits of shouting, making funny noises and affecting silly voices which suggests that he might suffer from Tourette Syndrome. Occasional outbursts are tolerable but there are times when he really goes off and keeps it up for long segments of his program, which is so annoying that I just tune away. On Sunday I recommended Malloy to a friend whose politics I'm trying to influence. This friend called me tonight and said he tuned Malloy in and found him to be a "howling fool." He said he's never heard Hannity or Limbaugh carry on like that -- and he's right. I'm curious to know from others here who listen to Malloy what their thoughts are on his yelling like a lunatic, affecting silly voices and sometimes coming on like he's reading to a kindergarten class. Do you find it as annoying as I do? And do you think it detracts from the general quality of his program?
