From the best podcaster

Adam Carolla's podcasts have become a regular highlight for the OC.  Real Clear Politics has a story of one of his recent shows.

Adam Carolla ripped Leslie Stahl of CBS's "60 Minutes" and those on the Left for complaining about enhanced interrogation techniques used by the U.S. after 9/11 to extract information from known terrorists. Carolla's main issue, other than Stahl's incessant questioning of Jose Rodriguez Jr., the chief of the CIA's Clandestine Service, was that the critics of such practices don't have a viable alternative to them.

Carolla said he hates when people use the explanation that if we stopped killing terrorists then perhaps they would stop hating us. Carolla called that type of thinking bull and said they hate us because of our way of life.

On the Thursday podcast of "The Adam Carolla Show," the host also explained his disappointment that those getting angst from reporters like Stahl, never throw their outrageous outrage back at them.

"That's your news. That's '60 Minutes.' That's the best we have to offer. Hard at fucking work. I always wish that people just throw it back at them. What's your plan then, Leslie? What would you like to do? How would you like to extract information from people who wanted to see Americans die and don't want to give up any information," Carolla said.

"And find me a country that does it in a more humane fashion than we do? Or shut the fuck up. You have no story. There's not a story here. Hey, show me the huge pile of bodies from waterboarding. They'll be right next to the huge bodies of second-hand smoke. They don't fucking exist," he said.
 Carolla tells it like it is.  RCP has the 20 minute audio file HERE.
