The Stars Were Aligned for a Moment

…and Tucker Carlson and I agreed.

On Bill Maher's HBO show tonight, the bowtie aficionado and darling of the conservative media admitted that watching Bush speak is "like watching a drunk man cross an icy street."

Well, that was fun. Snap back to reality, though.

Carlson then proceeded to defend Bob Novak for outing Joe Wilson’s wife as a CIA agent, saying that journalists should always feel free to tell the truth. Maher asked him if journalists should feel free to report and reveal troop movements even if it endangered their lives. Eventually, to be consistent, Carlson had to agree that, yes, a reporter should be able to report troop positions since that would be telling the truth.

What a descent into idiocy. All that simply to defend the morally depleted curmudgeon Bob Novak.
