Wash All You Want Lady M.

This fucking stain is permanent. I'm not sure there's a column that could be written that would make up for your role in the agonized deaths of thousands. It's times like this that I wish a hell did exist.

Suck on this, Moustache Man!

I admit I have not seen the whole video yet. (I might need to take some antacids before I can finish it), but, why is Friedman being interviewed? Isn't he a journalist. Shouldn't HE be interviewing someone? Who died and made Friedman an expert in anything?

This is one of the interviews he gave Charlie Rose. This is his infamous "Suck. On. This." interview around the launch of the Iraq War.

I remember back from that time he was on Oprah as a guest and there was also someone on there from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Jessica Mathews, and she took ol' Tommy to the woodshed. He was totally exposed for what he is right then, a know-nothing charlatan, and if he had an ounce of self-respect (note: not to be confused with self-regard), he would have crawled under a rock and not come back out.

Alas, Mathews, apparently just another Dirty Fucking Hippie was right, Friedman was wrong, and in our ever-diminished public discourse, there is no penalty for error, as long as you err on the side of starting a massive clusterfuck of a war and urge the deaths of thousands of civilians.

The tiniest fraction of just desserts happens right here:
