I am not a huge fan of MSNBC's Tucker Carlson, but on his show today he totally went off on right-wing radio blowhard Melanie Morgan. Morgan -- a total Karl Rove-talking-point repeating robot -- was asked if it was "immoral" to be against the Iraq War. She responded that it is, in fact, immoral. Then she started going off about 9/11 and beheadings and so forth. Carlson cut her off, said he had heard those talking points a million times already, and said the following genius line,
"That's so reprehensibly dumb that I am embarrassed for you for even saying that!"
That, my friends, is fair and balanced. Delusional and dangerous people like Melanie Morgan need to be taken down a peg or two. I'm glad Carlson had the guts to do it.
