In one of those moments that just makes you shake your head and wonder how stupid Charlie Gibson assumes his audience is. Today he was interviewing Bush 41 and Der Schlickmeister about tsunami aid and asks this beauty: “But I’m curious. You guys are such a political Odd Couple. Which one of you is Felix and which one of you is Oscar?”
Of course, it could be more political, as when Katie Couric told Clinton this morning he was a “noted deficit hawk” and explained how he was so dedicated to reducing debt in office. But Gibson could have asked a real news question — for example, has either former president considered going to the tsunami front lines to see the disaster for themselves? Why bring up old TV shows youngsters like don’t remember?
