I just watched most of Wolf Blitzer’s interview with the Egyptian ambassador, clarifying what Mubarak said in his speech. Essentially, the interview consisted of Blitzer constantly asking for clarification of Mubarak’s handing down all authority to his vice-president. He spent at least 15 minutes asking this question over and over and over and over and over, with the ambassador patiently giving the same unambiguous answer each time . . . an answer that I understood the first time he gave it. Actually, I don’t know how long the interview lasted, because I finally had to shut it off, hoarse from screaming at the tv.
The interview may be somewhere on this link, unless it’s still going on.
Does Blitzer get paid by the minute, or is he just stupid? This may explain his record-breaking score at Celebrity Jeopardy! last year . . . minus $6500.
