Evan Thomas, "Editor at Large"of Newsweek on C-Span - what a tool
Evan Thomas, of Newsweek Magazine is on C-span and he is a thrill to watch and listen to. The man, by his own admission has exactly no spine what so ever. He is against torture, but he thinks exemptions to the law are needed. He doesn't like warantless wiretapping but he thinks it will continue and that doesn't bother him. Discretionary spending is bad, but when a woman called in and asked him direct questions about her own situation (Social Security and Medicaid customer) he assured her that no reductions are necessary for people like her. The man has no discernible philosophical compass.

1. The meme that what President Obama means by...
entitlement reform is what the pundits mean by the same term is infuriating.

I saw him on tv the other day and he said that Aretha Franklin was more memorable than Obama's speech.
