When your host Jeff Baldwin recently read a Wall Street Journal article in which former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan called Sarah Palin a “nincompoop,” it galvanized him to face that possibility. Could it be that the darling of Christian conservatives was a ninny? Could it be that Palin is more about celebrity than statecraft? Co-host Bill Jack gallantly seeks to defend Palin, but part one of this discussion leaves Jeff unsatisfied. As a bonus, Bill and Jeff talk about the latest technology they’ve discovered in their regular segment, “Where the Tech are We?”

You would think, with a topic as large as “Defining Western Civilization,” that hosts Bill and Jeff would immediately cut to the chase on this edition of Radio Worldview — but you would be wrong. First, Jeff makes the rookie mistake of asking Bill if he has anything he would like to get off his chest, which leads to a prolonged rant about the TSA and their new body scanners. Next, Jeff takes the time to rave about a novel that he considers to be the greatest American novel since To Kill a Mockingbird. And then — finally — they settle down to business. What is Western Civilization? Is it merely an empty concept? Are its ideals eroding? An intriguing discussion ensues.
