Come on Get Snappy

Here's a great quote from an interview conservative radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt (HH) with retired general William Odom (WO). Odom recently published an op-ed in The Washington Post advocating immediate withdrawal from Iraq.

HH: Now General, you are a distinguished and long-serving member of the American military, in the Military Hall of Fame, you’re a Lt. General. I actually served alongside of you in the Reagan administration when you were running NSA. So I mean no disrespect by this next question.

WO: Yeah, you’re obviously going to call me a son of a bitch or something.

Awesome. Way to take the wind out the sails. You can read the whole interview here if you like.

This guy should run for office. He is excellent at rephrasing the issue so the interviewer cannot dictate the discussion. Thumbs up

I would say that this guy would probably make a horrible politician. He has a horrible tendancy to answer questions definatively.
