Louis CK, a guest on the Opie and Anthony satellite radio show, asks Donald Rumsfeld if he is a lizard from outer space. What ensues is an alternately fawning and prickly exchange between Rumsfeld and the three in the studio.
Opie and Anthony were fawning. Louis was not. Rumsfeld was on the air ostensibly to plug his new book
At one point Rumsfeld said that it’s important to have intelligence gathering in far-flung places for our safety.
Which I thought was funny, given how his buddy Dick Cheney bolluxed the intelligence gathering in Iran for political gain when he outed Valerie Plame as a CIA operative working on Iran, one of the most hostile nations on Earth. (Cheney’s chief of staff Lewis “Scooter” Libby took the fall and was convicted on federal charges, but does anyone really believe nobody else knew what they were doing?)
But I digress.
I have not listened to Opie and Anthony much since they were fired for an incident involving fake sex in a cathedral and subsequently moved to satellite radio. But they’re entertaining in their, um, unique way.
It’s a pretty funny conversation. And Rumsfeld is in top form in his non-denial.
I guess that makes him an unknown unknown.
