5. He was a failed Democratic campaign Manager

And then a Fox commentator. He was abusive towards minorities and women, much like all fox commentators. As he got older, he got more religious and conservative.

Not a man many people here will admire.

7. Beckel

Beckel used to brag on air that he had a pass from Murdoch to say whatever he wanted, without consequence, even if it was a lie.

Then he'd go on Fox and, on occasion, lie rather than doing research and refuting what they said with the truth.

That just jumped on every last nerve that I had.

When you're on the right side, you should never have to lie, in my opinion.

9. He was great on Crossfire though

Man, I miss that show. He had some classic wars with Pat Buchanan.
