Increasingly Lame NPRI stopped listening to NPR about two years ago. With pseudo right wingers like Mara Liaison and Juan Williams and Barbara Haggerty and that old lush and totally irrevelant Cokie Roberts, it was just a joke. But in the last month or so, I started listening every once in awhile. Only to almost immediately hear that moronic Mara Liaison making excuses for the Republicans. Deja vu all over again.
Then today I heard Robert Siegel interviewing Christopher Hill, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, and the head of the U.S. delegation at the six-party talks with North Korea. Not once in this lengthy inteview did Siegel challenge Hill on the fact that Bush's idiotic policies led directly to North Korea testing a nuke (if indeed they did).
Read this for some background on how Bush has fucked this up, too.
BTW, I saw a bumper sticker today on a big ol' pick-up truck that looked like those weird black square stickers that had a big W on it and The President underneath, but this one had a big F and The President. Made me laugh out loud.
