Oct. 30 Democratic debate transcript - The Debates -

Tim Russert, I used to respect you. You gravely disappoint me with your "would you pledge" question at the recent Democratic debat in Philadelphia.

Oct. 30 Democratic debate transcript - The Debates - "...would you pledge to the American people that Iran will not develop a nuclear bomb while you are president?"

This is a nasty trick that the news media seems to love to play on candidates, in effect, holding them against the wall by the throat demanding a definitive answer to a hypothetical but volatile question.

SHAME ON YOU! And shame on James Varner for pulling a similar nasty trick on Senator Kerry back in 2004. (Read my "Johnny On The Spot" blog.)

Do you know who would make such a pledge? George W. Bush, that's who -- because Bush is a megalomaniac who truly believes that he can do whatever he wants to whomever he wants. Last time I checked, the United States did not run the planet.

Oh yes, Adolph Hitler would also make that pledge.
