The past two weeks have been unusually busy. I am trying to get everyone’s comments up as fast as possible and to respond to all your emails. I especially appreciate the flood of messages from active duty servicemembers who are appalled by the chickenhawks depicted in my latest video. The response to “Generation Chickenhawk” has been overwhelming so please accept my apology for not blogging.
(I haven’t even had time to respond to the perpetually petulant Joe Carter’s screed about my report on all the Christian right hacks lining up to join Fred Thompson’s campaign. For now I will simply say that I hope Thompson declares. He is a fresh breath of halitosis. And I hope Carter gets the contract he is transparently seeking and becomes Thompson’s blogger. That might resolve the conflict of interest he currently faces as the 501 c-3 Family Research Council’s lead blogger.)
I have been in the studio (actually a bedroom in Queens) for the past four days with my right-hand man Thomas Shomaker, editing our next video. It is a tour of the Christians United for Israel’s annual Washington Israel Summit. This one will certainly be more controversial and possibly more shocking than “Generation Chickenhawk.” If you thought Tom DeLay’s attempt to link abortion to illegal immigration at the College Republican National Convention was unsane, wait until you see my interview with him at CUFI’s summit. For now I can only report that he has some interesting views on the Rapture. Joe Lieberman plays a supporting role.
I am hoping to release this video on Wednesday at the Huffington Post, so stay tuned. If the scheduled release date changes, I will update here.
