Wolf Blitzer Auditions for Fox News
We’ve always considered Wolf Blitzer more a congenial doofus than a pandering faux-populist, but we may have to revise our opinion in light of his questioning today to the lawyer representing the Fort Hood shooter:
They asked me, how could a retired U.S. military officer, a full colonel, go ahead and represent someone accused of mass murder? And I want you to explain to our viewers why you’re doing this.
Col. John Galligan (Ret.) fills in Wolf about what he missed when he skipped his high school civics class:
I fully appreciate the importance of ensuring that everybody has a fair trial… The rights that I’m asking be accorded to Major Hasan are the rights that service members live and die for.
Which doesn’t stop Wolf from getting in a sign-off zinger:
I’m sure he will get a much fairer hearing than those thirteen Americans who were brutally gunned down the other day.
We never thought we’d find ourselves agreeing with teabaggers, but we can’t help but ask: When can we get our America back? You know, the one where basic Constitutional rights aren’t challenged by politicians and their media lackeys.
