JC: What I’ll say is that I think Eric Alterman and Ann Coulter engage in the same kind of debate.
I’m not sure what crack John Cloud of Time Magazine is smoking, but whatever it is, I’d like some, please. Because it’s got to be really amazing stuff for him to compare these two people.
And speaking of people on crack, Fox News is promoting the story that Timothy McVeigh was just a patsy and the real people who bombed the Oklahoma Federal Building was Saddam Hussein & Co.
They got the first part right — he was a patsy. The second part is what’s wrong; the people behind the bombing were extremist right-wing Republicans. But if course, it’s not in Fox News’ interest to tell you that, because they’re pals with the people that did it.
