Sometimes You Just Have to Wonder....

How many times can Tom Friedman say, in essence, the same thing without any apparent thought beyond, "If politicians do exactly what I think they should do, everybody will love them"? All Obama had to do was serve up Tom Friedman-endorsed entitlement cuts and austerity along with the stimulus program, drown out the right-wing media machine that deliberately distorts the facts and his record, and run a squeaky clean campaign that would make John Kerry's response to the Swift Boat liars seem effective, and... trust Tom Friedman, he'd win!

Given that he has all the answers to the nation's woes, and knows exactly how to persuade the people, get the opposition party to go along with his legislative initiatives, and win overwhelming electoral majorities, all I can say is that it's a darn shame Friedman is a pundit instead of the savior our nation so needs.
