I don’t think he’s a dunce at all. He’s overbearing and arrogant. O’Baxter could use a large dose of humility and I am mindful that he needs to move his guests along and keep the interviews focused, but there’s usually no need to talk over or talk down to his conservative guests, which is precisely what he tried to pull on Sarah Palin the last time she appeared on his show.
In fact, she had to remind him of the time delay between her home studio in Wasilla and his studio in NYC during their “conversation.”
I don’t know of another way to explain how he can be completely impervious to well presented sound logic and concrete evidence which I see him scoff at on a regular basis.
A trademark of people from the northeast...emphasis on 'arrogance'.
