You have to wonder…

by Nathan Hamm on 7/5/2004

When you see a quote like the following, you have to wonder if PBS transcripts are done by machines:

You’ve seen in labia that Qaddafi had a “come to Jesus” moment

So many places to go with that…

There are many substantive and great things to check out in the transcript though, such as,

Christopher Hitchens: It’s quite useful to know that you have no alternative, that war has been declared on you by an absolutely deadly and completely irrational and evil foe. This war was declared quite a long time before we noticed. A time they were at war, we were not. That period is over. We’re not going back to saying you keep fighting, we’re going home.

(HT: Norman Geras, who did not focus on the smutty)
