Video: Robert Spencer on Iran's plans for August 22nd

The boss and I had it out over IM last night about whether this August 22nd doomsday warning is something right-wing pundits should be talking about. We did manage to agree on two points: 1) Like Bernard Lewis, Robert Spencer‘s always worth listening to, and 2) when an American television show books the author of “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam,” that in itself is a newsworthy event.

If only there were some way for him to get his message out in video format that bypassed the mainstream media. Hmmm.

I do think the apocalypse-now stuff has potential as a video trope, particularly if it were incorporated into a weekly weather report. “Clear skies ’til Sunday, Bill, except for Thursday, which happens to be the anniversary of Mohammed sacrificing a goat. A very important day for Shiites. I’m calling for a 40% chance of showers and a 20% chance of nuclear war in Tel Aviv.”
