Cutting Edge Super Journalism

You've got to get up early to catch a scoop on the NY Times, like maybe 11:30 AM. Last Friday.:

In the past week, I've received several e-mail notes from Democrats about the Iraq elections, or heard comments from various Democratic lawmakers - always along the following lines: "Remember, Vietnam also had an election, and you recall how that ended."

I only note this since it took the Vietnam election meme has been circulating around the blogosphere for a week now. Good work Mr. Friedman. And no, I don't give Mr. Friedman credit for being a Democrat with a least a grasp on reality if you read his op-ed. By the end he still wants it both ways, i.e., wanting out now, but not until we're successful. Nice pedestrian hedge there Mr. Friedman.

Friedman's writing is so wan its only purpose must be to secure invitations to dinner.
