I spent a marathon session watching everything available on Youtube, etc. a couple of months ago when I discovered him. What I really like is that he is actually thoughtful and sensitive with respect to people who are thoughtful, sensitive and respectful - regardless of their beliefs. It's just that he's not going to keep his mouth shut about his position - and he won't sit still while a jackass spouts bullshit as if they are the fountain of great wisdom or something.
Look for interviews with him as well as performances by him. Fascinating. He might be an a-hole in real life - I can't be certain. But, beyond agreeing with his point of view almost 100% - I really think I would love to hang out with the guy on a regular basis. I usually don't actually think that about public figures I admire.
Yeah - he certainly comes off as a quite a good dude. I just wanted to point out that I don't know him and so, can't really say. Public personae can be misleading. For example, apparently Chef Ramsay of Hell's Kitchen is actually pretty easy going in real life.
