'The arbiter of Western reason and sanity'

Tom Friedman can declare with a straight face that "anyone who shoots up innocent people is ... mentally imbalanced" without seeing how clearly that applies to himself and those who think like he does. It's that self-absorbed disconnect...that shapes most of our warped political discourse.
-- Glenn Greenwald vents on Thomas Friedman, and there's a note that Orwell would have recognised Friedman's use of euphemism.
