Dumb Editorial Column of the Day

By Debbie Schlussel
Yet another reason why the USA Today op-ed page is completely irrelevant. And dumb:
Today’s USA Today op-ed page has a column by Lionel Beehner of the lefty Council on Foreign Relations with this absurd headline:

A Bush-Ahmadinejad Debate? Why Not?

Anyone who needs to ask this question is a complete moron. It’s a headline more suited for The Onion. This is not a Coke-Pepsi taste test, in which both commodities are equal.
We’re lucky Beehner and McPaper weren’t around for this op-ed:

A Roosevelt/Truman-Hitler Debate? Why Not?

Among other stupidities encapsulated in the Beehner op-ed, is his anger that President Bush is ignoring “the Iranian leader’s quirky blog.”
Quirky? The guy is a madman loon who could annihilate the world. And he calls him “quirky”?!
Which leads us to the op-ed we would write:

A Council on Foreign Relations? Why?

The only good thing ever to grace the USA Today op-ed page is our friend, Cal Thomas. Other than that, it is pure birdcage liner.

Yeah…. “Quirky”… Quirky like a batshit crazy, megalo-maniac, only with enriched uranium to eliminate a few million Jews just a stone’s throw to the west of him.

The Left loves moral equivalence. Between good and evil though, there’s no contest. Then again, I am old-fashioned. I really do believe there is a difference even when the sophisticates in our society don’t see it. Ahmedinejad swears he doesn’t want the bomb. Hitler swore he wanted peace too, in the early 30s and look how it turned out. This is the fellow who believes the Messiah is coming in his lifetime and the world will end soon. People better believe it.

One more thing: when someone protests to me they aren’t an anti-Semite you can be sure the opposite about them is true. Remember that the next the time you hear Ahmedinejad saying he isn’t an anti-Semite. Its an old, true and trite saying worth keeping in mind.

I’ve never purchased the USA Today. It’s free, right?
