Poor Hindrocket went in good faith to be interviewed by Al Franken on Air America. He was specifically supposed to come on after Franken interviewed Nick Coleman, as a sort of rebuttal. Coleman got to say his piece about Powerline, sneering away, but Hindrocket never got to rebut.
Unsurprisingly, Franken only wanted to talk about himself. Droning on and leading his guest into an interview where he couldn’t possibly come off well.
At one point, Franken starts carrying on about how Michelle Malkin “said John Kerry shot himself” and Hindrocket had to defend Malkin and correct the fool, who continued putting out the misinformation. Clearly, Hindrocket was set up. He was invited to respond to Coleman, and then never given a chance to do so, and Franken was all over the map with one stupid, and mostly inaccurate thing after another.
Of course, Franken, the overrated putz, came off badly too, (he actually WHINES that his jokes are funny…) but that’s not how you treat a guest.
Right Thoughts supplies audio if you can stand to listen to it. Blame Franken – he is clearly biding time until he can get off the air.
Hattip to La Shawn.
