On the last Sunday of her life, Barbara Olson was a guest on Washington Journal, a C-SPAN morning call-in program that is frequently civil. This time, it was not. The topic was the Thomas hearings, on their tenth anniversary, and the calls that came in were electric with fury, as if no time at all had passed. Names, charges, and threats were flung around wildly. At one point, Bill Press, Olson's co-panelist, became rattled, pleading for tolerance, saying that people could argue as friends. But the hate kept on coming. Close to the end, one woman called Olson "evil" and said she was "too filled with hate" to live long...

C-Span's Washington Journal has become nothing but a platform for looney liberal seminar callers.
Too bad...C-Span is now on the loooong list of channels I no longer watch.
I have Barbara's book on order (it was sold out at my local book store!).
God bless BKO.

I haven't watched it in the longest time. It once was a morning ritual for me. I guess I haven't been missing anything.

I just want to clue you guys in about something. The bookstores are NOT sold out of Barbara's book. They are not ordering it. Anything that is against the clintons will never be out in front. It will be hidden is some obscure place or they will claim to be out of it. Barnes & Noble is especially known for this. Go back in two weeks and they will still tell you they are sold out. DON'T BELIEVE IT.

The C-SPAN show on that Sunday was the only time I had seen her on TV (that I know of). She was so nice to the ______'s that called in the show. My wife bought her book for my B-Day. I love it!!! I still read it. I will buy her book soon.

Yeah, they used to have a balanced program of predominantly conservative callers to debate the predominantly liberal (well, they are journalists) guests. So they fixed it, by putting a quota of no more than 1/3 conservative callers, and the show is unwatchable. I seldom watch C-Span now, except sometimes on weekends when they have to book author lectures.
