115. Little Podcast on the Prairie
The sagacious Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum drops by to discuss foreign policy, the nature of Islam, and other matters. Jay is surprised that Pipes is not more gloomy. As one of the most knowledgeable people on the planet about the Middle East, he is well worth sitting up and paying attention to. He’s even worth ending a sentence with a preposition for.
Jay and Mona then consider the, ahem, appearance of impropriety wafting from the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton juggernaut. It all rests on one thing, they agree – the press.
There’s a discussion of the victim weapon on college campuses, the Democratic Party, Obama’s profound and consequential dishonesty, and then some lighter to fare to end on. (Another preposition!) A little music and a tribute to a great American whose autobiography is selling out.
