If everything you knew about what happened in the Middle East last week came from talk radio, you might perfectly understandably believe that Barack Hussein Obama personally parachuted into Libya and attacked the U.S. consulate single handedly. On the other hand, NPR listeners might have gotten the impression that complicated forces were in play competing for air in the post-dictatorship worlds of Egypt and Libya.
But no. Talk radio made the correct course of action seem so simple: 1. Get rid of Obama. 2. Kill some Muslims. 3. Scare the hell out of the survivors.
That’s how you win respect in the Middle East.
