Jeff Koopersmith, who wrote the book Corrobillusion about Bill Bennett and listens to his radio program every morning for three hours, has a different take on the former drug and education czar: he's just plain stupid.

"If it were your sole purpose to reduce crime," Bennett said, "You could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down."… "That would be an impossible, ridiculous and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down," he added."

The key word here is "…" as it is the evidence of the split second it took for Bennett to realize his career was over and blurt out his too-late and very desperate attempt to recover and redeem himself by adding the "morally reprehensible" portion of his remarks.

I actually heard him stammer slightly as he added the excusing codicil, most likely knowing it would not save his sorry ass.
