I so wish I was just being snarky. Atrios found this from the Charlie Rose Show:
I am so horrified by this macho over-compensation manifesting itself as foreign policy that I must again ask, when you say something so heinous, so egregious, so over-the-top offensive, why in the HELL are you allowed a continued place on the national platform?
I think that Tom "F.U." Friedman and the NYTimes public editor deserve to have you ask them that question, don't you? Otherwise, I'm thinking that maybe we should take up a collection to send Tom to Basra (no Kevlar vest in the Green Zone, guarded by 100 troops and Blackhawk helicopters for him) and let him go door to door and see how the Iraqis left would respond.
