Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer gave some well-deserved ribbing to the Washington Post's Colby King on PBS's Inside Washington Friday.
"You do live in a completely different world," Krauthammer told King when he disagreed with his views about the just-ended Democratic National Convention. "And you drink, what is it, the Kool-Aid? Isnt that your favorite drink?" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Charles Krauthammer Mocks WaPo's Colby King: 'Kool-Aid, Isnt That Your Favorite Drink?'
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I saw a Party that has given us unprecedented unemployment, low growth, the most anemic recovery, not talk about the present, not talk about what it had done or the consequences of its policies. It couldnt. It talked about empathy. This was all about empathy. The only reason Obama is not 20 points behind, which he should be on the basis of his record, is because there is this huge empathy gap - 20 points ahead of Romney on who cares for average Americans. This was all about empathy, all about log cabin origins, and thats the only way Obama can win, and on empathy, they put on a hell of a show. A lot of tears in that audience.
GORDON PETERSON, HOST: Okay Colby, tell us about the convention you watched.
COLBY KING, WASHINGTON POST: Well, I wasnt in the same universe I guess with Charles.
KRAUTHAMMER: Well, you do live in a completely different world.
KING: I do.
KRAUTHAMMER: Yeah, and you drink, what is it, the Kool-Aid? Iisnt that your favorite drink?
KING: Well, youre getting off to a good start, Charles.
KRAUTHAMMER: Im just raring to go.
KING: No, I know you are.
PETERSON: Can we answer the question?
KING: Id like to get back to the show.
Imagine how much better the world would be if that weren't the case.
No not Kool-Aid... FOOL-AID!
Clarence Page must have been guzzling methyl alcohol for years then.
The Jonestown, Guyana massacre was done with cyanide in Flavor Aid brand drink, and it must just bug the heck out of Kraft Foods when Kool-Aid is associated with it.
The irony is that Flavor Aid was invented a year before Kool-Aid.
” Hastings is Kool-Aid’s
In 1927, Edwin Perkins invented Kool-Aid in Hastings, Nebraska. The six original flavors were strawberry, cherry, lemon-lime, grape, orange and raspberry (Mr. Perkins favorite). Kool-Aid was produced at 506-508 West 1st Street in Downtown Hastings, across from Burlington Station. Perkins Products were manufactured there until January of 1931. Nearly 80 years later, Kraft Foods owns Kool-Aid. Over 500 million gallons are consumed each year worldwide by Kids of all ages! “
