Wallace & Gitmo

"I look at [Fox's] Chris Wallace now and, apart from wishing I had never written his name except in execration, wonder how Mike Wallace feels about having produced such a blot of a son to carry on the family name in broadcasting. He must wonder where he went wrong, even perhaps in the dark night of the soul wish he had worn a rubber rather than spawn this disgrace to a once-proud profession," writes James Wolcott. "A guest on Hugh Hewitt's ham radio show for halfwits, Wallace mused that compared to the inmates of Auschwitiz or Belsen, Gitmo's prisoners would probably be happy to defecate on themselves, if that's as bad as it gets. This is the new meme among our shit-for-brains neoauthoritarian friends, that the residents of Gitmo should be grateful for their captivity and degradation." (James Wolcott via Direland)
