Zombie Beltway Hack Proves He Still Has More Hack To Give

As I wrote back in 2020, if you are a Liberal blessed/cursed with the superpower of Memory, you may remember that Thomas Friedman began working as a beloved Sulzberger family house plant in the same year that Dynasty premiered on ABC, NASA launched the first space shuttle and the first DeLorean rolled off the assembly line.

Thomas L. Friedman became the paper’s foreign affairs Op-Ed columnist in 1995. He joined the paper in 1981, after which he served as the Beirut bureau chief in 1982, Jerusalem bureau chief in 1984, and then in Washington as the diplomatic correspondent in 1989, and later the White House correspondent and economic correspondent.

And during that long, long career, Thomas Friedman has racked up a record of being both more egregiously wrong about more big things than anyone I can think of, and more predictably wrong in exactly the same way over and over again than anyone else I can think of.

The occasion for my writing the November 2020 post was Friedman elbowing his way onto CNN to insist that the best case scenario would be for Biden to win and Republican to hold the senate so both will be forced to compromise

And of the earliest post I wrote on blog back in 2005 was about Friedman trying to "Both Sides" the Iraq War.  

And now, 17 years later, it is possible that Friedman has come within a whisker of equaling the staggering insipidity of his grotesque 2005 Bush Clusterfuck hot take with this.

But of course no matter what he says or does, as long as Friedman remains a beloved Sulzberger family house plant and continues to be protected by his fellow Beltway denizens, he will never be held accountable for any of the ridiculous shit he says.

So look, the Genovese Family used to run everything
until the Gambinos were taken over by this Trump and
his crazies. But the Old Don's got a plan to do a counter-
takeover and put his daughter in with the Genovese
back on top again.
No matter what that hoople at the NY Post says though,
I don't think the DA is going along with it.

It sounds like some sick, pornographic fantasy, only profoundly retarded:

"Is that what America needs in 2024 — a ticket of Joe Biden and Liz Cheney? Or Joe Biden and Lisa Murkowski, or Kamala Harris and Mitt Romney, or Stacey Abrams and Liz Cheney, or Amy Klobuchar and Liz Cheney? Or any other such combination. Before you leap into the comments section, hear me out."

Oh, I'll hear you out, Tommy: get out and stay out!

Well.

We already had president Putin and his spokes person with Pence as the V.P.

So we had corrupt evil Sinner with the religious zealotry of hallowed sin.
