Robert Kuttner is the editor in chief of The American Prospect, and he recently participated in an interview on Fox News' Hannity & Colmes show. There's a great video of the interview on Crooks and Liars which is definitely worth checking out. While being interviewed by Colmes, Kuttner makes some interesting, thoughful points, and continues for some time in that vein until Sean Hannity, off camera, sensing perhaps that his show is starting to resemble a PBS interview, begins badgering Kuttner quite loudly and belligerently. Now Kuttner has the quiet demeanor and intellectual air of Paul Krugman, but unlike Krugman (who tends to clam up in the face of obnoxious confrontation of the sort that is Fox News' specialty) Kuttner fires back, uncowed, showing a belligerent streak of his own. Here's the YouTube version for your viewing pleasure:
