The things that they say (two)

I refer to a statement of such offensiveness and wrong-headedness that the only conclusion that can be drawn is that the person making it is a danger to society and should be removed from public life indefinitely for his and our safety. Rather worryingly the author of the remarks in question is a senior Republican, who has served at the highest levels of the US Government, as education secretary under Ronald Reagan and drugs czar under the first George Bush.

William Bennett is quoted as saying that "If you wanted to reduce crime, you could, if that were your sole purpose; you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down." If these are "conservative values" then you can stick 'em where the sun don't shine. The man has lost the plot, big-time.
a truly horrific comment,

do you know if he's being investigated for the comment?
It is America! Who knows! I suspect that there will be a furore and then he will carry on doing his radio show as before.
