A Royal Flip Flop?

Yesterday, Hugh Hewitt was once again up to his usual mischief and fibbing:

Earlier today on the program I read a complaining e-mail about my refusal to cover much of Charles' and Camilla's American travels from Peeps/The Elder at FratersLibertas.

Please e-mail Peeps all stories/photos of the Royals, and if you know anyone who knows anyone, Peeps will travel to shake the man's hand. He'll cry when you tell him.

Yet just last February, as Hugh was preparing for his debate with Peter Beinart in Minneapolis, he claimed that I was distraught at the news that Prince Charles was to marry Camilla Parker Bowles because I was a fanatical admirer of Princess Diana and had come to despise Prince Charlie.

That proves, of course, that his is empty rhetoric, a pose, and an indictment of his credibility on such matters. Repeated attempts to contact Hugh to explain his tangled web of deceit have gone unanswered. I'm sure that Hugh will try to claim that he was misquoted or misunderstood. But that excuse simply will not fly.

Not when he will not put words to his truth, when he will not expand and let a loaded charge hang out there, slandering a fine, dedicated blogger. It's despicable, Hugh Hewitt.

Speaking of Hugh and the Royal Family, I have it on good authority that he has a framed, autographed picture of the former Duchess of York hanging in his office. Apparently he credits her with saving his life. That Weight Watchers program really can do wonders.
