Wanker of the day: William Bennett

CNN.com - Bennett under fire for remarks on blacks, crime - Sep 30, 2005

Bennett, who held prominent posts in the administrations of former presidents Ronald Reagan and George Bush, told a caller to his syndicated radio talk show Wednesday: "If you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose -- you could abort every black baby in this country and your crime rate would go down.

He claims that it was okay because it was a hypothetical and that he didn't literally mean that they should do this. So, he stands by his statement. He has gone on the defensive rather than admit that the remark was a bit out of the bounds of appropriateness.

Come on, if the Bush administration thinks its inappropriate, it must really be bad.
