Matters over on Nile Gardiner's Telegraph Blog are utterly hilarious. Beyond hilarious, in fact. "Obama is a Kenyan-born Marxist Islamist." "There are no Palestinians (but we still need to kill them all)." "Israel First." "Healthcare is Communism." "The red states [and even some blue ones, in case you hadn't noticed] should and will secede." Standard stuff below the line over there, of course. But they are echoing the views of the blogger himself. Yet the newspaper that was once the Daily Telegraph gives house room, and probably even a salary or at least plenty of fees, to this person. Utterly hilarious. Beyond hilarious, in fact.
Ho, hum. The entire Romney team, even the entire remnant (such as there is) of the Republican Party, is now looking for anything very much to do. Who else could be given a spot by dear old Auntie Mabel? Dick Morris? Karl Rove? Richard Mourdock, defeated by a pro-life Democrat even though Indiana switched from blue to red in the Presidential Election? Paul "Ayn Rand" Ryan, who did not even bother to stand down from his Congressional seat, so well did even he understand that he was never going to be Vice-President? Newt "Moon Colony" Gingrich? Walid "Kill A Palestinian And You Will Enter Heaven" Phares? (In that case, of course, there must in fact be any Palestinians, as such, to kill.) One of those secession advocates who are apparently now springing up?
None of those holds views any more bizarre than those of Nile Gardiner. Or, to put it another way, Nile Gardiner holds views no less bizarre than any of theirs. Yet the newspaper that was once the Daily Telegraph gives house room, and probably even a salary or at least plenty of fees, to this person. Utterly hilarious. Beyond hilarious, in fact.
