Uncle Walter Appears As An Angel Of Light
And he brought the Wicked Witch from the North with him

In every glib comment, there a grain (and sometimes a truckload) of truth. I tend to think the latter when Walter Cronkite was presented some award from group calling itself the World Federalist Association.

The ol' Cronkster made no bones about his desire for nations to surrender certain aspects of national sovereignty in his clarion call for One World Government. And as Uncle Walter was chiding and ridiculing Christianity in general (and Pat Robertson specifically) that there would be no world order until the 'arrival of The Messiah', and anything done for such without Christ, is the work of the devil. Much laughter from the assembled minions at this point.

But I wasn't laughing when Cronkite said; "Join me, I'm glad to sit at the right hand of satan".

Remember, this is the same Walter Cronkite who publicly stated "The Viet-Nam War is unwinnable" during the Tet Offensive. Never mind the fact that the US Armed Forces kicked the living shit out of the Viet Cong. Hell, they had their asses whipped so badly, they were knocked out of the war for the remainder of the war, and North Viet-Nam (who were ALREADY in-country) had to militarily fill the vacuum.

But gee, I thought that Viet-Nam was just a civil war. At least that's what my hippie, draft-dodger college history professors told me.

Oh, and Uncle Walter, too.

Half the time it sounds like he has glass in his mouth; the other half of the time, he's just rambling.

Hard to believe he used to be the most trusted man in America.
