        It was a pathetic performance.  Hutchins
        has a point of view that can be discussed,
        but when he started associating Teresa
        with the "sleaziest of the sleaze",
        Pathetic Peter made a stumbling
        retreat, hinting that this was not the
        proper place for a debate, effectively
        cutting off equal time for anyone else on
        the panel with a contrary view.  For God's
        sake, the reason ABC invited Hutchins in
        the first place was that he wrote a
        Teresa-bashing book and knew from the
        git-go that he was an attack dog.

        For me it was:

                Peter:  Chris, please bash Teresa for us.
                Chris:  Bash, bash, bash.  Bash, bash,,,,
                Peter:  This is not the time and place
                      to bash.  And no defending
                         Teresa, either.
