That’s it, I want to work for the New York Times. Because when you can write sentences as inane as this and get paid for it, you’ve got a good thing going:
I have no idea who is going to win the Democratic presidential nomination, but lately I’ve been wondering whether, if it is Barack Obama, he might want to consider keeping Dick Cheney on as his vice president.
That would be Tom Friedman, who apparently believes that presidents and VPs should hold polar opposite views on the issues they care most about; after all, “good cop/bad cop” works really well on crime shows, so why wouldn’t it with international negotiations?
Then again, this is the same guy who devised the “suck on this” defense of the war in Iraq, so I don’t think we should be too surprised.
