A Dialogue Between Michael Medved and Chris Kelly

Michael Medved: "Regardless of the background or motivation of the killer, Virginia Tech reminds us of the most important truth of our time: that terrorist monsters can't be explained, or excused, or appeased, or ignored, or negotiated into civilized behavior..."

Chris Kelly: (Wow, the most important truth of our time. Auden said it was that we must love one another or die, but what did he know? Did he ever co-host the Movie Minute?)

MM: "They must be confronted and destroyed - before they destroy more of the decent and the innocent."

CK: I thought we were talking about the shooter at Virginia Tech, Cho Seung-Hui. Who's the "they" who have to be destroyed? Schizophrenics? Koreans? English majors?

I too saw this on HuffPo. I listen to Medved frequently (sort of, you know, Know Thy Enemy), and he does get pretty awful at times. This isn't even the most egregious.

Yeah, I used to dig Medved when he just did movies...and I'm not one of those types who sez that famous people can't have opinions on other issues. But MM just doesn't seem all that bright.
