That really was an astonishing sequence at around minute 16 (sorry, life is too short to go back and dingalink it). Althouse makes a, shall we say, counterintuitive assertion, provides no evidence whatsoever nor evinces any awareness that the burden of proof is on her, is confronted with evidence to the contrary, and shrugs it off with a "oh, I don't believe that for a second." Too bad she didn't play the "well I'm just trying to stir things up" card to complete the Althouse drinking game hat trick.

I don't know why anyone agrees to appear on bh.tv with her.
