I can't. I can't figure out why. But I found a realaudio version of it. The sound quality isn't too good, but it's better than nothing.

1. I remember, during the run-up to the Iraqmire.....
Watching Crossfire at a friend's house. France-bashing was at a fever pitch, and some dickcheese freep-type sent in Frank's quote about "There is no hell, there is only France," and Shmucker Carlson read it out loud and got big applause.....then said, "Well, if Frank Zappa said it, it must be true!"

Not since Reagan misunderstood "Born in the USA" had music been used against the ideals of its creator like that. I almost cried, being the big Zappaphile that I am.

"... it must be true."

I could strangle the cretin with his bow-tie and not even feel guilty.

Carlson is "ludicrous." (another of his favorites.)

9. "Everything you ever learned was wrong"
that's my favorite Frank Zappa quote,

Guess we can apply it to Carlson as well.
