A Billionaire Scion: Tom Friedman

Tom Friedman’s opinions on the Iraq war have long been proved bankrupt (here, here and most recently, here) but if you still put stock in his economic analysis about free trade and outsourcing, keep in mind that he’s the heir to a multibillion-dollar real estate fortune, and may not be speaking for the little guy. Political strategist Dave Sirota has the goods.

    Colbert Campaigns for Tom DeLay

    The Hammer has his hands full defending himself in court, but he?s still on the ballot in Texas, so Stephen Colbert was kind enough to make a campaign ad for him.  The prayer Tom DeLay says he made before having his mug shot taken, that ?people see Christ through me,? serves as the inspiration for the ad.

    Tom Hayden: Things Come ‘Round in Mideast

    The veteran social activist, drawing upon his own rude political awakening to the realities of Israeli and Middle East politics during the 1980s, warns that the Israel lobby in the U.S. aims to ?roll back the clock? and ?change the map? of the region and that its neoconservative supporters will probably try to use the current Middle East crisis to ignite a larger war against Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran.

    Robert Scheer: DeLays Mission Continues

    From the tone of his farewell address last week, you’d think Tom DeLay was being carried out of Congress on the shoulders of his colleagues, rather than slithering out of office with his tail between his legs.

    A ‘Wingman’ for the Wooing Wars

    Tom Friedman’s Elastic Deadlines

    The N.Y. Times’ foreign affairs columnist has been saying that “the next six months” in Iraq will be the “decisive” ones—for the last two and a half years. FAIR documents a “long series of similar do-or-die dates that never seem to get any closer.”

    Tom Hayden: Who Are You Calling an Immigrant?

    The fundamental issue underlying the attitudes of the May Day protestors is that “either the Mexicans (and other Latinos) are immigrants to a country called the United States or the U.S. is a Machiavellian power that denies occupying one-half of Mexico for 156 years.”
