That could be a Falwell (and always keep a smile on your face, no matter how injurious the statement), or any of the so-called conservative talking heads on a certain TV network, who are so convinced of their correctness that they do not need anyone else's input. (end rant). However, I have a very dear friend who babbles on like this, and he has come to be known (though not to his face) as Chatty Kathy ([TM] a wind-up talking doll of some years back). Since I seem to suffer from the opposite problem-- lack of small talk-- I tend to attract such people.
