I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Mark Steyn this weekend for an hour on WRKO, Boston’s Talk Station. Mark is an absolute joy to talk with, he’s funny, smart and one of the best conservative commentators anywhere. He’s a great interview and we had a lot of fun, we took some good calls from both sides, which was great.
Topics included Iraq, Islam in Europe, Senator Tappy-Toes and the civil wars within both political parties. On the right, social conservatives are unhappy, about the shenanigans on Capitol Hill and in the field of presidential candidates. On the left, the liberal base of the party is going after any pro-victory democrats, such as Rep. Brian Baird. Baird voted against the war, and has been against it from day one. He recently returned from Iraq and said the progress was demonstrable, and that staying in Iraq, at this time, is in the best interests of the country. For that, he’s being savaged by liberal groups like the Daily Kos and MoveOn.
