Fieger on Scarborough (racism + mysogyny): anyone catch that?
Geoffrey Fieger was on Scarborough last night talking about the (sorry) Jon Benet case.

I was hoping the transcripts would have his full comments, but they edited out the worst of it, which came during the crosstalk. This concerns me because he's running for office in Michigan - the convention is coming up soon.

His concern in the case - as he stated it - was that if Karr was a sexual predator, we should "Leave him in Thailand." "You protect all American children by leaving him (in Thailand). Edited out from the crosstalk in the transcripts was a bit about how we should be exporting our child molesters to Thailand. He said that repeatedly, if I heard that right - I'm wondering if anyone has a clip of it.

On edit, Mr Fieger sounds like an apologist, or worse.

2. I heard that, too
and I was shocked that no one called him on it. Why is it okay to put Thai children at risk?

3. Thank you
I expected to log in and see multiple threads about it here, and was shocked to see he got a pass on it - I was starting to wonder if I hallucinated the whole thing. I submitted an LTTE to the Free Press today about the exchange.
