Goldwater said:Hear hear.Bobkat said:His sentences are short and full of punch. And he has a rare ability to distill issues and ideas down to compact, searing polemics. Consequently, his columns have done immense damage to Barack Obama. No wonder the Irish Left hates him so much, writing non-stop whinge letters to the Irish Times calling for his column to be dropped. The Irish Left's campaign against his predecessor Mark Steyn intimidated the IT into dropping his column. Let's hope it doesn't happen to his successor. As a John McCain supporter, I want to salute the unique genius of Charles Krauthammer.
A scintillating polemiscist who has an unerring ability to cut through the noise and ******** and distill the issues down to their core components. His dissection today of the hyprocrisy and cant of Obama was magisterial and unanswerable.
I notice at least one letter a week from pathetic anti-intellectual leftists unable to handle opposing points of view calling for him to be axed. Thankfully to date Madam has stood firm. In doing so she has provided an invaluable service to her readers and, no doubt, most of her journalists. Neocons are despised and dismissed here as oil-deranged loons with no knowledge or understanding of the rest of the world outside of Washington DC. Any fair reader of Krauthammer would have to acknowledge that, even if he completely disagreed with the politics, there is a supremely serious and engaged mind at work
It's bizarre to see someone with the 'Goldwater' moniker spout such gibberish, as Goldwater was not a neo-con.
