Little Tommy Friedman

Digby has more.

And I don't have time to unpack the transcript right now (no link, just nexis), but if you have the stomach you can gaze on the horror for an entire hour with Charlie Rose from this past week.

Friedman's someone who advocated killing random innocent people to prove we could. Leaving aside the, uh, rather dubious morality of this and the fact that of such things war crimes tribunals are made, since we're supposed to take as given that he's a good and sincere person, let me make a separate point. This thinking, which could probably be best described as the Glenn Reynolds school of foreign policy is, aside from being evil, fucking stupid.

But he's a public intellectual!

And so is Ann Coulter.
