Is Jonathan Freedland An Idiot?

Short answer: yes.

You know, I've concluded that there are people out there who would, like this old fool, really prefer to have our world run by the Chinese. No offence to the Chinks, but no. No thanks. In fact: No. Fucking. Way. And believe it or not, this jerk gets paid - handsomely paid - week in, week out for this kind of nonsense. (Okay, so he's alluding to Jonathan Swift's dark satire A Modest Proposal, in a way which has been done before by chief bore Noam Chomsky among others, but I think this guy really means it. And unlike his imitators, Swift's piece is both angry and funny.)

Whoah! No sooner have I zipped up my flies than I come across this. Yep, yet another plonker proselytizing "our dream" - this time it's to impeach Tony Blair. Dream on, dream on. Why not imagine no possessions while you're at it? Cunts.

It may seem odd that I'm slating two articles wafted out on the same day by the Guardian. Why not fuck off? - like I did about a year ago when I raised my two fingers to the Independent, and hit delete. Now I completely ignore its shabby journalism (last year Exhibit A in this regard was Robert Fisk) though I miss the pithy pieces by Howard Jacobson.

Well, I like the fact that the Guardian vents both sides of most issues - and does so more than any other newspaper in Britain (only Slate compares on the web, though I'm always hoping to find another journalistic Eldorado). Long may it be the case. But bullshit is bullshit is bullshit and I know it when I read it.
