One reason I forgive his errors so quickly is that I don't know any reasonably successful person on the radio who calls democrats communists. And he doesn't mean it cynically or for mere entertainment; it is a sound and true position that he holds.

Hannity et al. are only willing to suggest or imply the same view, and rather weakly.... "Isn't that rather marxist?" is something I would expect from other show hosts.

We need more straight talkers like Jay or Ann Coulter, even if they are wrong at times, calling commies "commies".

I should have added that the reason I stopped listening had nothing to do with my getting annoyed with his opposition to the war. I moved closer to work, and my evenling commute went from 1-2 hours (depending on traffic) to 10 minutes. Not to mention that his new syndicated show is on much later now and doesn't coincide with my commute anyway.

I like Jay for the very reason you mention, that he's a straight talker. I can even tolerate that he was against the war, since he made a good, logical, reasoned, principled case against it (unlike the Lib argument against the war, which is simply that there is NO justified reason to go to war, ever). I just happen to think that there are very good, logical, reasoned, principled arguments FOR the war as well, and I just don't understand why he wasn't even willing to entertain them.
