If you want to read a truly cartoonish column, I’ve got one for you. It’s a piece by Daniel Pipes in yesterday’s New York Post. Pipes argues that “the Left” really doesn’t care that much about 9/11 and is actually quite admiring of Osama bin Laden since his outburst is the sign of a new global proletariat rising up to overthrow the United States. The same apparently applies to Saddam. “The Left takes to the streets to assure [Saddam’s] survival, indifferent both to the fate of Iraqis and even to their own safety, clutching instead at the hope that this monster will somehow bring socialism closer.” Who knew?
