Ziegler: ...the best way I can describe the Democratic agenda for retaking the House right now is--root for American soldiers to die in Iraq. Root for the economy to tank and gas prices to soar and also root for Hurricanes to hit as late in October and as close to November as possible...

Insert my opinion: Hoping our troops die and tragedy to strike America is a lunatic assessment which should be plain for any talk show host to debunk before moving on to the next guest--but hey--that didn't stop her from asking these questions.

Host: Sam, is that all the Democrats have to be critics--they don't have any good ideas of their own?

Greenfield: Those are all ridiculous statements. (Shouldn't she have said that?) So this thing that I'm rooting for disaster to hurt Americans is not only disgraceful, but frankly I think it demands an apology...

None came.
