Obersturmführer Bennett went on Fox last night to 'splain himself (link to "free Fox video" here) ... claimed the literature on "race and crime" makes his argument less reprehensible. He also put Colmes in his place by saying that, although he'd had plenty of chances to call Colmes a nutty liberal, he just said "no."
He did not say why he linked black people and crime. He didn't even say "violent crime," although that argument is just as silly, and he ignored the disconnect between the total crimes committed and who gets convicted. And what if there was a pre-birth test for Lays, DeLays, and Kozlowskis? What if we could stop them in utero? As Don Henley said, you can steal a lot more with a pen than a gun.
As Bennett said: "If we are surrounded by the trivial and the vicious, it is all too easy to make our peace with it." Surrounded by the vicious? If Bill retires, it'll be less of a crowd.
So what do you think? Will he lose his radio show?
