Posted on May 18, 2006
“The Daily Show” host drops rhetorical bomb after bomb on Ramesh Ponnuru, whose book “The Party of Death” argues against abortion rights. Our favorite: Stewarts’ comparison of collateral damage in Iraq and in abortions.
Crooks and Liars:
As I saw the cover of Ramesh’s book “The Party of Death,” highlighted in huge letters in the background on “The Daily Show,” I caught myself wondering why I got so upset with it in the first place. Since Jane, Sullivan and I have highlighted this aspect of his book; Ponnuru has been running away from it like a speeding bullet, crying that he had no control over the title or the book cover. (links shortly) Digby writes much more on this.
