Libertarian Smackdown

Perhaps the most surprising moment on this weekend’s Freedom Watch (for which I write) is the moment when hulking professional wrestler Kane is asked what he thinks about liberty and he gives host Judge Andrew Napolitano an erudite citation of nineteenth-century French economist Frederic Bastiat.  You can find clips from past shows here, and you can watch the new episode on Fox Business Network at 10am and 8pm Saturday, 7pm and 11pm Sunday, Eastern, so surely you’ll want to catch it at least once.  Besides Kane, it’s got Ann Coulter, Bob Barr, espionage-analyzing Washington Post reporter Dana Priest, and more.

I love the topics and general message, but I find watching the show very frustrating because there are so many guests and long, loaded, questions that they rarely have enough time to give a complete answer or make an intelligent point or argument.

I understand that you don’t want people eating up all of the time with speeches, but it seems like half of the time the person only gets a half-sentence out before the judge says “Got it” and moves along.

I don’t know if you can do anything about any of that, but maybe some feedback can be passed along.
