This Week

I meant to highlight this before, but I happened to catch 10 minutes of This Week with Christiane Amanpour before heading out the door this past Sunday, and I was impressed enough to watch the episode online later.

My initial concerns that fringe figures like Robert Spencer might gain legitimacy were quickly assuaged by the display of reason and intellect by Amanpour and her guests. It was actually rather startling to see something like that on an American political show.

It's almost as though Amanpour is just vastly smarter than the likes of Chris Matthews and David Gregory. Now, if only she could find a way to keep George Will off the roundtable. Then she'd be golden.
