Ramesh Ponnuru with Jon Stewart

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.

Update: It appears that the NRO has removed the post I was going to link to for clarification on Ramesh and Jonah Goldberg's reaction to the book complaints. I wonder why? I've searched for it and the link does not work. I've emailed others to look.

Stewart quickly made him look foolish and his arguments ridiculous.


A reader comments:

The first word that came to my mind after watching him last night was "evisceration". Besides his extremely offputting voice and deer-in-the-headlights manner, Ramesh didn't make any statement that approached coherence. Stewart's question asking Ramesh to justify killing innocent people in the war was the highlight. Ramesh's only response was that he was opposed to Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Gulp!
