Former Virginia Governor Mark Warner attended the massive tinfoil hat gathering in Las Vegas last weekend, known as Yearlykos. Not only that, he provided a lavish party and gave the keynote speech. The address was filled with exactly the types of statements one would expect to create an orgasmic response from the unhinged, but columnist Charles Hurt notes one statement that left the room flat:
The line that earned him the most enthusiastic applause with hoots and hollers was his call for Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld to be fired.
But seconds later, Mr. Warner said that "we are all glad to see the end of" terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi. That line was followed by silence.
Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?
Maybe they aren't glad.
