  •  Juan Williams is an idiot--literally (8+ / 0-)

    He recently interviewed Dr. Carl Hart, an expert on drug use and policy, on CSPAN's After Words, and after Hart carefully and methodically explained why our current drug policy is failing, giving ample examples, Williams asked "Well, can you give me some examples?". Hart's expression was priceless. He tried his best to remain calm and courteous, but his expression said "What a fucking MORON!". I pity the poor saps who have to spend time with these shmucks.

      at which time point this happened?  I note the video is an hour long and I don't have the patience to listen to Juan.  Thanks.

        But he displays his idiocy on a regular basis throughout the interview. His basic stance is "I don't care how much evidence you give me, I believe what I believe and you can't make me drugs are EVIL!".

        to find the timestamp, but couldn't find it, and didn't have the stomach to listen to it again. It's quite painful, like listening to Obama argue with Palin.
