I love the last bit there in your post, but it would be even better if you could link to the mpeg. Is that possible?

I agree with Monkey Knife Fight, please link to that mpeg! I am shocked at such perversity and need to establish just how perverse it is by viewing it myself.

Abu Aardvark would you mind offering your opinion on this blog post: http://stupidevilbastard.com/index/seb/comments/arab_american_psychologist_wafa_sultan_tells_it_like_it_is/

Specifically I would like to hear your opinion on both the story itself and the fact that the blogger is shocked that al-jazeera is a legitimate news station that carries multiple points of view and not part of the vast monolithic Muslim plot detailed in the "Protocols of the Elders of Mecca" that far too many Americans seem to think exists.

Sorry, I feel funny about uploading the mpeg... for same reason I usually don't link to the jihadi forums I cite. It's nothing that would shock Western sensibilities, though, pretty much exactly like an ESPN out-takes reel. It's the response to it that's telling.

On the Wafa Sultan question - not surprising at all to see someone like her on al-Jazeera. She's the kind of figure likely to produce hot controversy and good television. Al-Jazeera - and especially Faisal al-Qassem's program, where she appeared - has been doing this kind of thing for a decade...

I see where you are coming from, AA. I'm a sucker for those kinds of videos, is all. The public only gets one side of a newscaster: that authorative and trusted voice of worldly information at 6:00 sharp. Or 6:30, I can't remember which. So, it's always nice to see the...uuhhh...veil...of authority get pulled back and we see the coke-addled, alcoholic blowhard that the person really is. It's funny like that.

Thas really sad
