Will Haiti change Jay Severin’s view of the military?

One of Jay Severin’s many oft-repeated epigrams is that the role of the United States military is to “kill people and break things.” Given our armed forces’ tremendous efforts in the wake of the Haitian earthquake and the view among many high-ranking retirees that the military should be given even a more prominent role, will Jay admit that the military can appropriately be used for humanitarian aims? I wouldn’t bet the house on it.

    another gem
    today, at about 5 pm, jay had a riff about how the census is a democrat plot; said that twice before mentioning, oh, yeah its a constitutional requirement, so the problem is how the are doing it, they are count everyone, when the constitituion says to count only americans

    so jay doesn’t know the constitution, which clearly says to count all people….

    Been a long time. Life events have hindered my ability to either comment on your blog or even listen to Jay’s show. I am curious, since the Scott Brown victory, has Jay’s on air demeanor changed? Does he seem happier? Or is it the same old indignant.witty Jay we all know and love?

    Patrick, the only thing worse than listening to Jay Severin is listening to Jay Severin gloat. So I’ve been tuning in a lot less frequently myself. I am curious, though, to see if he considers the IRS plane bomber a terrorist. Because that would seriously mess with his “all the terrorists have been Muslims” line.
