What fresh hell is this?
Listening to NPR is becoming torture for me. Where is Amnesty International? Daniel Schorr, "distinguished" NPR commentator is unbearably stupid. I work with so many liberal Jews from New York and Schorr epitomizes what I hate most about them. He is entirely irrational. He has opinions that are not supported by facts and he will stick to them by hook or by crook.
Schorr was being interviewed by the elderly commentator of NPR, Bob Simon, a reasonable, liberal Jew. Asked about North Korea and the nuclear situation, Schorr bemoaned the lack of enthusiasm by the Bush Administration for one on one talks with Kim Jong-il. When Simon said that Bush felt that North Korea was a "reprehensible regime," Schorr stated that, what was "reprehensible" was that Bush could actually solve the situations with Iran and North Korea by agreeing to one on one talks. Right. Schorr hates Bush, but he sure thinks a lot of Bush's power and influence.
It is amazing how the left is always accusing Bush of being a liar and yet is so willing to believe what the murderous leaders of third world dictatorships say. They are even willing to believe that anything that is promised in one on one talks, a la Madeline Albright's with Kim Jong-il, will bear lasting fruit, despite all evidence to the contrary. Schorr believes that an agreement to cease nuclear development will actually mean something. That is, Kim Jong-il and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will mean what they say and say what they mean. Leaders willing to starve, torture, and kill their own people for having "western haircuts" and who spend much of their money on weapons of war, would never lie to the US. Ain't it purty to think so.
Of course this is the same party that believes that children never make up stories about being molested even when coached by psychotic feminist psychologists with agendas. Of course women never lie about being raped either, unless they claim they were raped by Black men, then they are liars. The left believes the only people on earth capable of lying for their own benefit are white, Christian Republicans. "I never had sex with that woman!" Oh wait, he wasn't a Republican!
