... and they both want the Dixie Chicks in burqas

The stupid comment of the week award goes to Charles Ferguson of the Council on Foreign Relations. During an interview yesterday with Dan Matheson on CTV Newsnet about Iranian Predident Amadinijad's challenge to debate President Bush live on TV, Ferguson had this to say:

"Both of these men have a lot in common - they're both very religious, they don't drink alcohol, and they both feel strongly about their country's place in the world."

And they both want the Israeli tumour wiped off the face of the map. Oops - strike that last one.

How did the media get so full of morons?

The talking heads ask each other and anyone they're interviewing the dumbest questions imaginable sometimes, is it some sort of behind the scenes competition they have with one another to see who can most closely resemble the anchor 'Ted' from the Mary Tyler Moore show?
