Hugh Hewitt Eviscerates La Times Moonbat Joel Stein

If you saw Joel Stein's piece in the Los Angeles Times yesterday and felt overwhelmed by an explosive urge to rip out his stinking guts, throw them on the floor, and trample on them, forget about it — Hugh Hewitt has done the job for you.

The piece in question is "Warriors and Wusses," in which Stein proudly announces that he has the courage to not support American troops, on the grounds that anyone who joins the US military is "willingly signing up to be a fighting tool of American imperialism."

Hugh Hewitt interviewed this useless little fool yesterday, after which Stein was carried out in a basket. The transcript and audio are available at Radio Blogger.

Unsurprisingly (to those who have read his column) the La Times pundit came across as a scatterbrained fool with a credibility problem. For example, he asserted that he has "no family at all" in the military — and then a few minutes later started talking about his cousin who graduated from West Point and is currently serving.

Although Stein clung tenaciously to his spiteful position on the troops, he was so overmatched intellectually that he hardly put up a fight against Hewitt, who had no problem squeezing embarrassing admissions out of him.

On removing the Taliban and disrupting al Qaeda's base of operations after 9/11:

"I did not support the invasion of Afghanistan."

On the topic of the military:

"I'm not an expert at this at all. I mean, I think you certainly can tell."

On the topic of the salary he "earns" by spitting up one short column a week, which is admittedly more than twice what enlisted men earn — and probably a lot more than twice:

"I am grossly overpaid..."

On whether Iraq is better off for having been liberated from a genocidal dictator:

"[I]t's hard for me to say."

On whether he would write the same vile column again if he had it to do over:

"Yes. I would."

On whether it would be appropriate for people to cancel their subscriptions to the LA Times because of said vile column:

"Yeah. [I]f they feel like that's their only recourse, sure."

It's hard to argue with him there. Anyone still subscribing to La Times is urged to cancel by calling this number: 1-888-565-2323.

Thank you V the K for the tip.

Galloway Chills With Psychopath Uday Hussein

Galloway GREETS Uday like an old friend, shaking his hand and twice calling him “Excellency”. JOKES with his pal about losing weight, going bald and failing to give up smoking cigars. ORDERS watching journalists not to publish parts of their conversation. TAUNTS America — and VOWS to stick with sadistic Uday “until the end”.

I guess all one really need do now is hose the blood off the walls in Hewitt's interview chamber and ask your next favorite liberal idiot columnist to step up in line.

Paranoid Moonbat Fears Being Rounded Up Into "Navy Prison" for Google Search

Kathryn Hanson, a former telecommunications engineer who lives in Oakland, Calif., was looking at BBC News online last week when she came across an item about a British politician who had resigned over a reported affair with a "rent boy."

It was the first time Ms. Hanson had seen the term, so, in search of a definition, she typed it into Google. As Ms. Hanson scrolled through the results, she saw that several of the sites were available only to people over 18. She suddenly had a frightening thought. Would Google have to inform the government that she was looking for a rent boy--a young male prostitute?

Ms. Hanson, 45, immediately told her boyfriend what she had done. "I told him I'd Googled 'rent boy,' just in case I got whisked off to some Navy prison in the dead of night," she said.

Ms. Hanson's reaction arose from last week's reports that as part of its effort to uphold an online pornography law, the Justice Department had asked a federal judge to compel Google to turn over records on millions of its users' search queries.

And naturally, the New York Times willingly whores itself to disseminate her deranged paranoia.

Nicely fisked, Van Helsing. Listened to this one live on Hewitt last night - completely unbelievable.

So Stein's column wasn't humor gone awry, a la Andy Kaufman? He was serious?
