JUAN WILLIAMS-BRIT HUME SMACKDOWN!
Blogging with Fox News Sunday rolling. First up, former National Security Babe and now Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice. (Methinks I could listen her talk all day long. One of these days, I will write the definitive post on all things Condi, probably when Steve-O writes the definitive post on all things Helen Hunt). She is, and will continue to be, a more effective Secretary of State than her predecessor. Unlike Powell, Rice is a believer in Bush's worldview and his foreign policy.
Round table follows--Juan Williams body-slammed by Brit Hume over Dick Durban's "Nazi comment" and Durbin's non-apology (of the usual "I'm sorry if anyone was offended" genre). Juan body slammed again by Brit over the Terri Schiavo autopsy results. Mara Liasson plays the peacemaker with mixed results.
Finishes up with head of "Hoop Dreams", non-profit in D.C. that raises money for college scholarships for inner-city D.C. high school students among its worthwhile endeavors. Proof yet again that private action is more effective than government programs at keeping kids in school and lifting them out of poverty. Anyone remember midnight basketball circa 1994?Posted by LMC at June 19, 2005 11:06 AM
