In today's scale, J.F.K., a fierce anti-Communist, and budding supply sider, was probably to the right of G.W.B. Indeed, he was assassinated by a l eft wing nut, a fact curiously omitted from Mr. Rich's column.
Rich, a New York Times bloviator paid a fortune to be outrageous, spends a considerable amount of ink / pixels blaming Jefferson – one of the guiding founders of the Democratic Party, for the current situation in which Americans don't trust their government.
Oh, yeah, he doesn't like Tom Coburn either. Mostly because Sen Coburn has exhibited some skepticism about the trend of government.
Let's be agreed – all sides of the political specturm produce nuts – Timothy McVeigh, Lee Harvey Oswald, Sirhan Sirhan, the Black Panthers given a pass by Eric Holder, Code Pink, SEIU, ACORN, Obama's friends the terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn in the Weather Underground, etc.
Ooops - somehow Frank whitewashes the Weather Underground connection....
