Nuking the State Department

Imagine a prominent left media talk show host saying the following after interviewing an author (Foggy Bottoms is the downtown D.C. location of the State Department):

"I read your book. When you get through, you say, 'If I could just get a nuclear device inside Foggy Bottom, I think that's the answer.' I mean, you get through this, and you say, 'We've got to blow that thing up.'"
Of course, this invitation to nuclear terrorism came from a rightwing source, Pat Robertson on his "The 700 Club."

Actually, here's a measure of the rightwing dominance of opinionated media on television. Throw out a name of a liberal host who you could even imagine making such a statement, say if they had shown up drunk that day?

Outside of Bill Maher, it's hard to conceive of anyone. Any suggestions?
