A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

If it had been said on Fox News...: about a liberal, then this would be all over the media and the liberal blogosphere as evidence of those hateful Republicans.

Unfortunately, this time it was a liberal talking about a devout Christian -- so it's OK.


Nina Totenberg of National Public Radio: “Now they’ve got this guy who’s head of the intelligence section in the Defense Department who’s being quoted as telling various groups, while he’s in uniform, that this is a Christian crusade against Muslims. I mean this is terrible, this is seriously bad stuff.”

Colbert King, Washington Post editorial writer: “The other thing about Boykin, he got it wrong. He said God put George Bush in the White House. The Supreme Court did it.”

Totenberg: “The Supreme Court put George Bush in the White House.”

Charles Krauthammer, syndicated columnist, joked: “It was 5,000 yentas in Palm Beach who couldn’t read the ballot. If that was not an act of providence, nothing is.”

Gordon Peterson, host: “By the way, he was showing pictures of Somalia, Mogadishu and there’s a black mark in the sky and he said 'these are demons who controlled this thing.’”

Totenberg: “Well, I hope he’s not long for this world because you can imagine-”

Several voices reacted in unison, drowning her out, including Peterson: “You putting a hit out on this guy or what?”

King: “Are you Reverend Pat Robertson?”

Totenberg: “No, no, no, no, no, no!”

Peterson: “What is this, the Sopranos?”

Totenberg: “In his job, in his job, in his job, please, please, in his job.”


Yeah, right. When I use the phrase "not long for this world" I'm talking about someone's employment, too.
