You have to know that Jolly's win had to pucker a few of the GOP Establishment assholes.

That's a good thang!  :beer:

Dr. Levin is truly a man after my own heart. He also has a Warrior Spirit. Love the guy!

I was out running errands and heard Levin yesterday. Well worth listening to the real story - though there will be those who dismiss it out of hand because it's Levin... one of those dastardly conservtives.

Thanks for posting the links to Levin's comments on the Jolly/Political March 7th article.

Perhaps you should support your claim.

You support yours that he does possess a doctorate.  Just google "Dr. Mark Levin."  There are Mark Levins who are doctors, but not one of them is a talk show host.

You just cannot resist, can you?

In 1980, Levin earned a Juris Doctor from Temple University Beasley School of Law.

That is what the "JD" after his name means.

"In 1980, Levin earned a juris doctor from Temple University Beasley School of Law."
(Source: http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=17298 - "Mark Levin takes talk radio by storm" by Terrence Jeffrey and Allan Ryskind, writing for Human Events, October 2, 2006)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Levin

And if anyone has any doubt, I also note two quotes from Wikipedia's page on the juris doctor title:
"Invariably an earned doctorate, the J.D./D.Jur. is equivalent in academic rank to the Doctor of Laws or Legum Doctor (LLD or LL.D.)."
"The American Bar Association has issued a Council Statement advising law schools that the J.D. should be considered as being equivalent to the Ph.D. for educational employment purposes."

It's not typical to use the title "Dr." for a juris doctor (the suffix Esq. is more common) but it's not technically incorrect, either. Any person with a law degree is technically a Doctor.

Does he call himself "Doctor"?  Apparently not.  I had no idea he had a doctorate.  His demeanor certainly doesn't reflect doctoral behavior.  Screaming and yelling and hanging up on callers is more in the Michael Savage vein.

Of course, that's the way Savage behaves too, so there must be something about earning a doctorate that causes one to go off the rails.

So any run-of-the-mill ambulance chaser is a "doctor"? 

In the legal profession, then, that degree apparently has no value.

Thank you for posting this.

I was hoping to see if sinkspur would actually do his due diligence before embarrassing himself further. I guess that I set my expectations a tad too high, though.

Bashing lawyers is never considered hijacking a thread.   Referring to everyone of them as a "doctor" is ludicrous in the extreme.

I knew he was lawyer, but had no idea that the guy on the highway billboard who fixes traffic tickets had the same degree as The Great One.


This is akin to every other black minister calling himself a "doctor."

There are a fair number of callers that will address him as Dr. Levin, not as many as there used to be, but I still hear one or two each week.  I assume that those that do address him in this manner, do so out of respect.  He never makes any bones about it either way.

He is a "colorful" character in some ways and most people either love him, or hate him.  (I'm in the "love him" category.)  Many of his callers will also address him as "The Great One" (hence the TGO references) as a slightly humorous sign of respect as well.  (I'm not sure of the origin of the "The Great One" address, it may have originated from the mouth of Sean Hannity, and has stuck for many years.

Rush used to call him "FLEE" as in F. Lee Levin as a sign of humorous respect and collegiality.

Love him, or hate him, you have to acknowledge his dedication to conservative causes, his track record of walking the walk (see the many cases of his Landmark Legal Foundation), his prodigious knowledge of COTUS & SCOTUS and the philosophies that the Founders used as guidance and direction, and his willingness to speak the unvarnished truth about both sides of the political establishment, both the Rs and the Ds.

Regardless of whether Mr. Levin has what you consider a legitimate "Dr." title or if he's simply well educated on our legal system, how does it impact what he said?

I think that's what the OP had in mind. The substance of Levin's comments.

I like him, I respect his knowledge, and his thoughts. I don't care for his program. He's too aggressive, arrogant, and dismissive for my tastes, but I don't begrudge those who like him.

Sinkspur's criticism comes across as petty, making him appear to be jealous, or just a small personality.

I have no idea what he said.  If he's not pimping a book, he's trashing other Republicans.  I haven't listened to his show or read anything he's written in two years.

That sounds like a criticism Mark Levin would make to a caller who doesn't kiss Levin's backside somewhere in the call.
