Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns


To Beijing with Love

The failure of the Republican Party simply to roll over and play dead in the face of Democrat control of the White House and Congress has caused certain liberals to enter a state of apoplexy.  Case in point, this op-ed by Thomas Friedman, who apparently believes that the Chinese Communist Party provides a new model for us to follow.  Will Wilkinson has a few choice words about that, I'm happy to say.

The ideas in the article are terrible of course, but Wilkinson points out the sheer incompetence of Friedman's thought and expression. Friedman uses "one-party democracy" when he really means "two-party democracy (and I wish the other party would just shut up and go away or agree with me so that we won't have all these disagreements about what me and all my so-smart buddies all agree we should do)." How does such an attack on the english language get published in a major newspaper?
