RWN On Crossfire?
RWN On Crossfire?: Someone just emailed me and said the interview I did with Ann Coulter was mentioned on Crossfire. Can anyone confirm and give me some details if they were watching?
***Update***: Here are the relevant quotes from the transcript…
BEGALA: Well, let me also thank you on behalf of Senator Miller, who I’ve worked for off and on for a dozen years, a very close friend of mine. I think he would take issue with a lot of things that you say, Ann.
For example, you gave a famous interview to “The New York Observer” where you said, “My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is that he did not go to “The New York Times” building. You were later asked on a Web site called rightwingnews.com if you regret that.
Now everybody says stupid things, and I’ve thought of course you said you would regret it. You did. Here’s what you said, though. “Of course I regret it. I should have added, after everyone had left the building, except the editors and reporters.” Now, again, is that Ann Coulter’s view of patriotism to call for mass murder?
COULTER: No, that was just a joke, Paul.
BEGALA: I don’t think it’s very funny.
NOVAK: Then why do you think they’re laughing?
COULTER: I think that should be the new slogan of the Democratic Party. I don’t think that’s funny. That’s not funny. You can adopt the slogan of the feminists. I don’t think that’s funny.
BEGALA: Wait. Just finally, do you regret saying that?
NOVAK: She said no. She said it was a joke.
COULTER: Yes and no when read my answer. No, it was a joke.
Thanks to the So Cal Lawyer for running that down. He has a heck of a nice blog by the way, so you may want to check out that link…
