    Count me in the opposing party.  I heard him speak at Berkeley last year.
 More boring than church, to quote the Simpsons.  The only time people in the
audience woke up was when he stopped to insult somebody, or when (near the
beginning) an interesting gentleman stood up and yelled out, "We love you!"
His voice just tends to be extremely droning and repetitive, kind of like
white noise on the TV...  An interesting evening, nevertheless.
