Islamofascism Can Be Such A, Well, A Nuisance! And about That Los Angeles Times
This is from today's L.A. Times. Are you surprised that such a commentary could appear in the Times, that paragon of agenda journalism?
Well, Mike Ramirez is the only regularly-appearing bright spot on the Times editorial page. When I glance at the page to see if there happen to be any credible writers appearing on it, I always check for the Ramirez cartoon. I wonder what Michael Kinsley (recently-named Times editorial page editor and vicious partisan) thinks of Mr. Ramirez' cartoons? I also wonder whether Kinsley would ever have hired Ramirez.
Speaking of Mike Kinsley, how seriously can we take an editor who prints an unsigned editorial in a major newspaper, insisting that there is ample reason to question President Bush's intelligence? Here's that editorial, wittily titled, "Is He A Dope?" The descriptive term "beneath contempt" comes to mind.
Anyone familiar with Kinsley's work over the years recognizes his touch immediately. Kinsley's fingerprints are also all over today's lead editorial . (Times links require registration.)
Before you suggest that I cancel my subscription: I'd love to, but my wife needs to take the paper for her professional endeavors. I read the sports page.
What a waste of newsprint.
