Paul Washer is well-thought-of by terrific people. He's a name that is spoken with trembling and awe. I'm sure he's saying some things that need to be said. Like that we all suck and we're all doing everything important completely wrong... which seems to be mostly what he says. Or I've just had terrible "luck" in what I hear from him.
Every time I hear any snippet of Washer speaking (like this one), I come away thinking, "Yeah, well, I guess it's a good thing we've got that one person out there doing it exactly right."
I can't think that's the impression he wants to give. But it's the impression I get.
