underdog.gif John Amato of C&L, debating John Derbyshire on Alan Colmes show:

Amato: So Mr. Derbyshire, you are a coward. And if I saw you— face to face—I would call you a coward because you are.

Colmes: You care to respond?

Debyshire: Ah, no actually–I don't respond to abuse. I get a lot of abuse…

Amato: That's abuse? That's just fact.

Well you've got to give the Derb credit for giving voice to thoughts that all the other lizard brain couch potatos think but have better judgment than to say out loud.  A valuable portrait of a consciousness riddled with wormholes to the wingnut alternate universe where we're winning in Iraq,  George Bush is akin to Winston Churchill and 14 year-old girls are all hot for flabby, aging, pasty faced keyboard commandos.  

No, really.  S'true.
