Hewitt Eviscerates Stein

Joel Stein, author of a very silly editorial in the LA times, was interviewed by Hugh Hewitt today. Hewitt sometimes gets to be a bit much, and I think he was wrong about the strength of Harriet Miers as a nominee for the Supreme Court.

But still, the guy can conduct an interview.

HH: But Joel, I'm talking about you. I'm talking about what you honor, and you obviously don't honor military service.

JS: I honor police service. I honor military service. Any...I just think that...

HH: You do honor military service?

JS: Yeah. No, I'm grateful for people that serve in the military.

HH: But you don't support our troops?

JS: I don't...I don't believe in supporting the troops in an action that you don't believe in.

HH: And so, that would be everything I've named thus far. So I guess...did you support and honor the troops in the Pentagon on 9/11?

JS: Sure, yeah.

HH: All right.

JS: All the troops that are here to defend our country, I'm very, very grateful for. I'm grateful for the police...

HH: Provided they don't leave the country?

JS: Yeah, provided they don't fight in wars that I think are endangering them for no reason.

HH: And the moment they do, you stop honoring them?

JS: The moment I do, I think it's a poor idea to show support for them and prolong that engagement.

Poor Joel was out of his element on this one. As traffic non-santa says, read the whole thing. It's enlightening.
