The Post on Wolfowitz Lawyers, Guns and Money
I've been trying to break my lifelong habit of reading far too much of the New York Times, which causes me all kinds of psychic consternation. (There's half a dozen names--Gerth, Nagourney, Wilgoren, etc., who have me muttering under my breath before I've read a word of the article). I've been using the Washington Post as a sort of methodone, and what everyone was telling me is correct--it really is a better paper. But --this editorial is breathtakingly bad and deeply insulting. Here's the crux:
Mr. Wolfowitz's critics, domestic as well as international, should now get beyond their dislike of his role in the Iraq war and give him a chance to succeed at one of the world's hardest jobs.
