My six minutes of fame

This morning, I had the pleasure of appearing on Tony Snow’s radio show on Fox News Radio. I arrived at work at my customary Monday morning time, around 9:20, to learn that Tony wanted to interview me. Within 15 minutes, I was on the air, live.
Now, Rocket Man and Trunk are old radio hands. But it’s been so long since I’ve been on the air that the last time it happened, I was defending race-based preferences. That was around the time that Walter Cronkite was the most trusted man in American.
Talking with Tony was a joy; it felt so much like a conversation with a friend that I nearly forgot I was on radio. Tony couldn’t have been more complimentary about Power Line, and he specifically singled out my colleagues’ work fighting the good fight with the Minneapolis Star Tribune. I got the sense that he’s been reading us for some time.
My best line, I think, was when I compared the dispute over the CBS memos with litigation. As near as I can remember, I said: this dispute is just like litigation. You have expert witness and lots of obscure facts you have to learn. The only difference is that in this case there’s no one competent on the other side.
