Your guest is complimenting you on a comment and the best you can come up with is oh, "this was short of my yawn"? Gawd, and you wonder why your audience is shrinking faster than a d**k in a cold pool. Get your head out of your own ass, Miller.

I have just unfollowed. I love the stories about the old SNL days. I really used to love Dennis' opinions on things back in the day. I just can't handle the political ignorance. You rave on for half the show and don't have the story straight. You have turned into the "get off my lawn!" guy. 😢

Re: climate change and a recommended way to engage climate change believers (starting at ca.17m40s mark). Dennis, man, I have been listening to your opinions for coming up on two decades but, listen. You need to ease up on your shtick. SIMPLIFY. Organized speech is a sign of an organized mind. What you said there made literally no sense--not just conceptually but also linguistically. "I've heard varying opinions that are tenures from the point of no return" ?! WTF. My claim to the right to share an opinion: a (semi-) functioning brain and three university degrees, two of those in the top centile of tertiary educational institutions worldwide.
