Jane, You Ignorant Slut

Fox News' Juan Williams and radio host Laura Ingraham inadverdently recreated the old Saturday Night Life "Point/Counterpoint" skit, although unfortunately my favorite line didn't quite make in into the remix.

Here's a little clip from the transcript:

INGRAHAM: Here's my question to you. If Hezbollah's strength is seriously
degraded, is that good for America and our security interests or bad for America
and our security interests?
WILLIAMS: It's terrific for American security interests.
INGRAHAM: So why on earth, Juan, would we tell Israel to stop, cease- fire? Because a cease-fire applies to home. It really applies to Israel. It doesn't apply to Hezbollah. They're not listening to anything.
WILLIAMS: What is going on in your head? Where are you? Have you noticed...


Later they get into a "Let me tell you something," "No, let me tell you something," argument kind of like the one I got into last week with a drunk guy at Ned Devine's. Actually, I think that's the only thing this exchange was missing: alcohol.
