Wilson on Larry King

The Dishonor Roll nominees keep pouring in, and I’ll post a full update first thing tomorrow morning. But first, in case anyone plans on watching Larry King on CNN tonight, just a heads-up that former ambassador Joseph Wilson will be apparently taking viewer calls on the show, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. EST.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Why should I watch Larry King? I’d rather bang my head against the wall for an hour.” I can’t blame you for thinking that, but I can give you one reason to watch, and possibly even call into the show, and that is that no one in the press is ever going to ask Wilson the following questions:
1. Didn’t the former prime minister of Niger tell you on your trip that he was approached by an Iraqi envoy in what he interpreted was an attempt to buy uranium?

2. Weren’t the sixteen words about uranium from Niger in the 2003 State of the Union address based on British intelligence reports that have since been confirmed — in other words, intelligence that had nothing to do with you or your trip?

3. How do you fit your giant head through doorways?
Somebody needs to ask Wilson these questions, and since no one in the press will, maybe one of us can get through on Larry King’s show tonight. Of course, I understand if none of you try. I’m sure talking to Joe Wilson is a lot like banging your head against a wall.
