Once again wipes his tender, billionaire ass with the New York Times and calls it a day's work.
This time -- as always -- more infantile mouthnoise about a Glorious Third Party which will rule benevolently over the Imaginary Country that the Mustache of Understanding persists in thinking he lives in.
After they abolish Congress.
And the Supreme Court.
But that, alas, is not what we’re getting, which is why there remains an opening for an independent Third Party candidate in the 2012 campaign.
Sure the GOP is undoubtedly naughty, Barack Obama is equally naughty because he has failed in his primary Constitutional duty which Tom Friedman apparently believes is using Tom friedman's Grand Bargain to Exposed Once and For All the cleverly hidden naughtiness of the GOP
I’ve argued that the only way for Obama to expose just how radical the G.O.P. has become would be for the president to put out in detail his version of a credible “Grand Bargain” and then go sell it to the country.
Expose the villains!
Just like on Scooby Doo!
Which leaves only this question: "Expose" to whom, you fucking shmegegge?
At the ass-end of 30 years of escalating Republican psychosis, who is there left to convince? Who remains unaware of what the GOP is up to? Who is there in the whole wide world of sports who has not noticed that the Right is hell-fucking-bent on smashing this country to bits, selling the scrap the China and selling its people into indentured servitude?
Offhand, I can think of only five distinct groups who possess that kind of fortified, adamantine cluelessness -- the dead, the long-term comatose, the criminally insane, very small children and Tom Friedman.
(Well, those five and the +50% of the American electorate who have no idea where they are or who is running their country, so fuck 'em.)
So why does this awful, awful hack have a job at the New York Times?
Because he is rich.
Because he is connected.
And because his fatuous Centrist naughtytalk
My fear is that both parties have just started their 2012 campaigns. In which case, the rest of us will just sit here, hostages to fortune, orphans of a political system gone mad, hunkering down for a bad century.gives people like fellow billionaire Mike Bloomberg and the "No Labels" grifters big happy boners.
