On the eve of Good Friday, I checked in for my weekly radio appearance with Hugh Hewitt on what Hugh called mordantly "another slow day" for news. We went on air just a couple of hours after the "breakthrough" at the Iranian nuclear "negotiations";
MARK STEYN: I gather the talks were near to collapse when the Iranian foreign minister proposed converting the Fordo nuclear facility into a homophobic bakery. At that point, the Americans threatened to walk out and the whole thing looked it was going to collapse. But fortunately, they said they're going to keep the centrifuges spinning in that underground facility that can't be bombed...
As indeed they are. We also discussed the targeting of Christians - fatal in Kenya, fatal to pizza restaurants in Indiana:
HUGH HEWITT: Al-Shabaab has mercilessly executed 147 at a Kenyan university this morning. Things are quiet around the globe thanks to the leadership of President Obama.
MS: Yeah, that's right... Again, they demanded to know whether people were Christian or whether they were Muslim, and then, at this university in Kenya, they killed all the Christians. They haven't started killing them, yet, in Indiana, but this TV reporter going from pizzeria to coffee shop and demanding to know if the proprietors were Christian and what they thought of the legislation in Indiana, and then finding some poor sap who was willing to talk to her, and then the Big Gay enforcers descended on that pizzeria and forced it to close down. That's actually a difference of degree.
Oh, and we also found time for a little bit of Hillary and her server:
HH: She has brazenly wiped it down, and she got rid of the Sidney Blumenthal million emails from his private intelligence network, which at least to some people appear maybe to have skirted the outskirts of the Foreign Agent Registration Act. Does she get away with this?
MS: Well, you know, the fact is Trey Gowdy offered her, I think, some kind of private meeting with his committee. In other words, he accepted Hillary Clinton's view of herself, that she is not one of the 300 million citizens of this country, but she is some kind of special person. She's like Barbra Streisand in politics. When Barbra Streisand comes into a room, you've got to have it carpeted before she'll enter it, because otherwise, it might affect her voice. And Hillary Clinton regards herself as belonging to a special category. And the job, if any of this - these checks and balances things in the Constitution - means anything, the job of Trey Gowdy and other congressmen is to remind Mrs. Clinton that she is a citizen of the United States, no different from you, and no different from any other employee of the United States government when it comes to the bureaucratic requirements.
HH: Do you expect that to happen?
MS: Well, given the way the Republican Party has behaved from Washington to Indiana to Arkansas in this last week, I think one would have to say that's a bit of a long shot.
Indeed. We are all Hillary's servers one way or another.
You can find the full interview here. And a Happy Easter and Passover to all Hugh's listeners.
[UPDATE: More from my conversation with Hugh at The Daily Caller:
Apple would happily do business with Kim Jong Un. The Iranian government, after today's events, will have a lot more money with which to buy a lot more Apple products, and I'm sure he looks forward, Apple looks forward to opening up in the Iranian market.
They pick on Indiana because they can. And that's the difference.]
