Nuke that simile

on 3 Comments

The New York Times TV Watch covers Oprah’s interview with John Edwards’s former mistress, Rielle Hunter, and says that Hunter is a tougher interview than Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and runs with the point:

Ms. Hunter and the Iranian president have a disconcerting way of saying preposterous things in a calm, complacent tone; both are serenely impervious to contradiction or sarcasm.

They aren’t exactly on the same danger grid, of course. Mr. Ahmadinejad’s plans for a nuclear arsenal are a threat to the security of the United States, whereas Ms. Hunter’s ambitions serve mostly as a cautionary parable for aspiring American presidents.
