Snarlin’ Arlen earned the name on the syndicated Jason Lewis radio show. Apparently Specter was forced to endure the unspeakable cruelty of sitting through two commercial breaks while the host hadn’t yet bothered to mention his score-settling book.
Via the Daily Caller, here’s how the conversation ended:
“Jason, I have one final comment,” Specter said.
“I gave you 10 minutes. You’ve been over every subject except for my book. I’ve listened to two rounds of your commercials. I think it’s insulting. I’ve been in a lot of interviews in the course of the past 30 years and you are absolutely insulting!”
Specter’s on-air tirade didn’t stop there. “This is no way to run an interview!” he said.
“Listen, I’m talking about somebody who’s civilized!” Specter added.
“I told you the last time around I wasn’t looking to sit around and listen to your commercials, and I didn’t want to hang up on you. But I want to tell you this is no way for anybody to run an interview. I’m as experienced as you are, if not more so. And that’s all I have to tell you, so goodbye!”
I half expected Specter to say “and what happened to the pictures I was supposed to see this week?”
Arlen’s obviously used to the commercial-free comforts of his public television show. Zzzzzzz…
Hard to blame the host for going to a couple of breaks. When you interview Arlen Specter, your ratings actually go up during the commercials.
