I think you are being a little unfair to Laura on ths one, although she does sometimes interrupt the guest too often. It was a great and powerful interview.
After Elder finished, Laura ruminated that this may not be a useful avenue of attack for Bush since the Dems could respond that Kerry was risking his life in Vietnam and Bush was in the National Guard. She also said that the Dems have been going lightly lately in terms of attacking Bush on his National Guard record. I think this is what prompted the call mentioned above.
Elder was a great guest--articulate, informative, and authoritative. Laura needs to stand back and let a guest like Elder get out his message. I listen to her every day so I don't think I am being unfair. She doesn't think that attacking Kerry on his military record is useful. His antiwar activities yes, his military service no.
Laura only lets her liberal guests talk. She is such a girly girl. I like a talk show host who tells me something I don't already know. She whines, she flip flops. She reminds me of my sister, she always has an ass or an elbow as my grandmother used to say. I find her annoying!
