Barbara Walters, giving a whole new meaning to “getting the get”

Thanks to John Cook at Reference Tone, we now know exactly how Barbara Walters would conduct an interview with Saddam Hussein. Barbara was on “Larry King Live” last night discussing her “Ten Most Fascinating People of 2005″ special (are we sick of Jennifer Aniston yet?) with the always-inquisitive Larry, who wondered about her policy against profiling the infamous:

KING: You wouldn’t do Saddam Hussein?

WALTERS: No.

KING: But if he gave you the interview, would you do him?

WALTERS: Oh, I would do him for hours and hours and hours.

Yikes. We’re so juvenile. Please forgive us Barbara!
