“The Silent Majority Wants a Dictatorship Run by Thomas Friedman” – Tom Scocca, Slate
That was pretty much my reaction to the last two pieces by the intrepid NYT columnist (see “Harnessing the Tea Party” and Steven Taylor’s “Silly Third Party Musings“) but I wasn’t nearly that pithy. I never cease to be amazed that highly intelligent observers of the world around them really think that their views are smack in the mainstream despite being extreme outliers.
