The Latest Conservative Wanker

Thomas Woods, author of "The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History." A sampling of his profound thoughts:

A commitment to "the unvarnished truth" would also presumably include Dr. Woods' description of current American foreign policy as "war after war against the enemies of Israel, at American expense."

It would also include Dr. Woods' belief that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was planning to "use the distraction of [an American] war with Iraq … [as] an opportunity to carry out the ethnic cleansing of the two million Palestinian Arabs living in the occupied West Bank and Gaza."

It would also include Dr. Woods' memorable insistence that the September 11 attacks were "bound to" happen to us because of "the barbarism of recent American foreign policy" in "attempt[ing] the hubristic enterprise of running the world – and not even on Christian principles."
