  1. I like Fred from the standpoint that he is articulate and isn't afraid to defend or even attack in defence of his mostly conservative beliefs.

    He gets brownie points for slamming Michael Moore's face into the mat on his praise for Cuba by pointing out that if Moore lived in Cuba and did his "fake-umentary" thing... he would be in prison.
