The always interesting Crooks and Liars has posted the infamous 1985 Crossfire episode in which Frank Zappa (who was quite a conservative) utterly schools the Washington Time’s John Lofton, and skillfully beats down on Robert Novak and Tom Bradley.  Frighteningly, much of Zappa’s points are just as relevant today as they were 20 years ago.

    Didja notice how neither Novak’s appearance nor self-righteous stance has changed in the past 25 years?

    Two words: Satan’s minion.

    Seriously. He can’t be human.

    Lofton is just downright ridiculous. You got to get out more.

    I love that he’s so crazy Robert Novak was backing away from Lofton like he was on fire.

    That was really good. 

    I wonder what Lofton thinks now with all the stuff going on with the wire tapping Americans without a warrant. 

    He probably thinks it is ok too.  What really strikes me is that the concept of a “Slippery Slope” did not come up.  This vid is a hard and fast case of our government starting down a slippery slope of censorship and have arrived at where we are today.  Wire tapping Americans with out a warrant. Some may say that this is too much of a leap.  I consider them linked though.
