I just had one of those moments, a combination of “Did I really hear what I thought I heard”, and “I’ve just crossed into a parallel dimension, where black is white, stupid is brilliant”: I flicked on the tube, and came across Chris “I’ve devolved to a screaming parrot” Matthews interviewing Jimmy Carter on Hardballs. I am paraphrasing slightly, due to a lack of Tivo or a photographic memory, but here’s the question:
Mr. Carter, do you think it was possible to avoid going to war in Iraq? If they had been able to get in touch with Saddam, LIKE ON A PHONE CALL TO BUSH (my emphasis), and he could have explained to the administration that he didn’t have any WMD’s, would that have been able to avoid the whole military confrontation?
How does this guy have a show on anything other than local-access, 3 A.M. cable? Lex, see what you miss with your stubborn refusal to own a T.V. ?
