A Judith Miller interview full of sturm and drang

Whoa, was this a testy interview [RealPlayer required] with "On the Media's" Bob Garfield.

No transcript, but you really have to listen to it to hear how near-unhinged Miller sounds. There frequent outbursts, here's one: "Excuse me! You want to argue with me? Fine." And when asked if she had been played for a chump by the Bush administration, this response: "First of all, I’m not going to be insulted by your question."

If you saw her grinning, soft-pillow interview with Larry King this week, this was a big turnaround.

I'm a little disappointed that Garfield spent so much time talking about how Miller chose to approach Libby by saying that she would identify him as a former "Capitol Hill staffer." It's a minor point at best, but Garfield does win it. There are bigger questions that kind of slide by. Oh well.
