It's a great post. You all know how I feel about Hugh Hewitt. He and his compatriots treat what's happening to our country and Iraq as if they are sports teams. It doesn't matter what his team does as long as it wins. Therefore he changes his position to fit what his team is doing. Case in point. On Scarborough Country, Hugh was for raising taxes so we could have private accounts for Social Security if that was the compromise. Wingnut Dennis Prager and Joe almost fell off their chairs and said (paraphrasing) "No true conservative would advocate raising taxes!" Unfortunately when you turn into a cheerleader, and an apologist for your team no matter how dirty that team becomes, you yourself become just as dirty. Hugh, please take a shower.
