Ted Turner: master logician

Thanks to Radioblogger for the transcript from Blitzer:

TT: Have you ever been to North Korea?
WB: No. I've never been to North Korea.
TT: Well, you know, at least go up there and look in their eyes and have a chat with them, before you accuse them of...
WB: I've made several requests, but they haven't let me into North Korea.
TT: Then go on your vacation.
WB: Maybe if I go with you the next time.
TT: All right. I took Christianne Ammanpour with me this time.

Madeleine Albright had that chat (and dance as I recall) and look how well that turned out.

Clearly, I'm to examine the timber in my own eye before judging the mote in another's but I don't think that has much to do with logical discourse.
