BAD GAMBLE… The fallout continues from William Bennett’s on-air speculation about the crime-reducing potential of aborting African-American fetuses. Today, the virtuecrat-turned-radio-host resigned as chairman of the online education firm K-12, saying the move was necessary because “I am in the midst of a political battle based on a coordinated campaign willfully distorting my views, my record, and my statements.” Presumably the White House is not part of that coordinated campaign, even though it too has criticized Bennett’s remarks. I suppose I could say that those ill-advised coments were the most expensive mistake Bennett’s made since he lost $500,000 at the Bellagio, but that would be ridiculous and morally reprehensible.
