Somebody stop the bleeding

March 24, 2009

 Please, somebody, anybody, remind O’Rourke of the old adage about entering a battle of wits unarmed. 

The latest from the Denver Post.

O’Rourke has continued to hammer away at Churchill about the claims about American Indians being infected by smallpox-infected blankets. In that line of questioning, O’Rourke asked Churchill why he said that he preferred to be called doctor at the start of his testimony on Monday when he has only earned a master’s degree.

Churchill: “I have an honorary doctorate.

O’Rourke: “They gave you an honorary title?”

Churchill: “You wish to dishonor it?”

O’Rourke: “No.”

O’Rourke resumed questioning about the source of Churchill’s smallpox blankets research.
