Apples and Oranges
Last night’s In Depth topic was, sort of, “mouthy” politicians making headlines. We started with the latest on the Blagojevich trial, as to whether or not he would testify (he won’t.) We also included comments from Sarah Palin regarding the mosque planned near Ground Zero. That segued into a Jeanne Moos piece on Palin, and other politicians, making up words. In this case, Palin used the word “refudiate,” which is not a word.
Here are come of the calls we received:
“Rod Blagojevich, uh, he can talk his way out of a closet. And as far as Sarah Palin is concerned, uh, she is a clown. And we’re doing Shakespeare a disservice by even putting her in comparison with him.”
“Hey, it’s just like OJ Simpson; if you got enough money you can get off of anything you want to. You can kill anybody or do anything you want, but, it just like OJ Simpson, always good if you’ve got money. That’s what it takes.”
