Would You Buy a House From This Woman?

Interesting dialogue today on Fox News' business show "Cashin' In".

Those quoted below are guest panelist Barbara Corcoran of The Corcoran Group, a residential real estate company, and Jonathan Hoenig of Capitalist, a regular. The group was discussing Iranian nukes.

Barbara Corcoran: The military option should be taken off the table. Perhaps I'm too peaceloving, but I think it's bizarre . . . Most importantly, the American people won't even tolerate it. They don't have the confidence in the President, they're not going to follow him into another ridiculous war. They just won't tolerate it.

Jonathan Hoenig: You think this would be a ridiculous war? You don't have the moral confidence -- the moral assuredness to say that Iran -- the leadership of Iran -- are evil mullahs with big weapons who want to slit our throats?

After some talk from other participants, Corcoran let go with this gem:

I trust the Iranians as much as I do our own President.

Corcoran is from Manhattan; Hoenig from Chicago. So maybe it's just the voice of Manhattan vs. the Midwest. To me, however, it sounds like the voice of the left vs. the voice of reason.

Is she for real? Is she 100% certain that Ahmahdinejad doesn't want to incinerate New York? Or does she suspect that President Bush does?

Our prayer should be: "Dear Lord, give us this day our daily bread and also one more vote than Barbara Corcoran and her buddies can muster in any election."

Ms. Corcoran is obviously one of those rabid right-wingers liberals say infest Fox. The Left should suggest that Roger Ailes be horsewhipped for allowing her airtime.

Imagine if some right-wing isolationist said in 1937, "I trust Mr. Hitler more than Roosevelt."
