There's no wingnut like an old wingnut!
Yep, it's time for the Twilight Zone with Helen Caldicott, who's made a long and tedious career out of "anti-nuclear" and other related strains of wingnuttery.

From Tim Blair:
Take pity on Wolf Blitzer. The CNN veteran has just interviewed anti-nuke mystic Dr. Helen Caldicott, who is to rational thought what jazz ballet is to full-contact Thai kickboxing.

From Bill Herbert:
I'm no fan of Roger Ailes' cavalcade of idiots, but at least they have better judgement than to allow a rabid quack like Helen "Every time you turn on an electric light, you are making another brainless baby" Caldicott parade without challenge the same tired lies about depleted uranium (not to mention the even more egregious bullshit about dead Iraqi children), accusing the U.S. of war crimes.
