It annoys me that I know who Alex Jones is.
I saw a segment* on his show about Osteen recently, and despite being inclined to agree with the general sentiment, the whole thing was off putting. The guy doesn't just come off as an ill informed raving lunatic, but seemed very inauthentic to me, just looking to jump off into the deep-end with whatever topic one of his listeners with anger management issues called about. He's a nutcase, but he's also a charlatan.
*Note this is the first time I've seen his actual show and not as part of a news segment discussing him.
It's funny, when his wife filed for divorce, claiming she didn't want her children raised with a daily diet of right-wing lunacy (A Jones works from home), that's exactly what Alex told the court: "It's an act! I'm not really that way!"
RE: Osteen. I love how a supposed Christian pastor has to be shamed into being charitable and helping people.
I'm a smoldering volcano of virility. At least, that's what I tell myself.
