Sweet jumpin' jehosephat, this is funny!

Radio guy Hugh Hewitt had a guest yesterday, Andrew Sullivan, who turned what could / should have been a civil discussion into... something else entirely.

James Lileks is a regular on Hugh's show. The show's producer called Lileks to ask what he'd thought of the exchange. James suggested that he go on the air with Hugh and they talk about the weather, with James channeling Sullivan.

Here's the audio

About eight minutes. Classic.

I sleep easy knowing that men such as these are awake and on watch.


How did I get here? Hmm. From Malkin's site to MKH's blog at Townhall to Blackfive to instapinch - and a bunch of clicking around there, to this particular overstress story.

The quote that made me LOL: "I want to make the bad thing stop."

If you're not familiar with Rod Machado's "b-b-b-bad thing!" story, let me know in the comments and I'll post it. It'll take two or three people asking for it.

1984 all over again

Yet more evidence that there are two factions battling for control of the US government.

The other group is the Republican Party.
