I almost never read the New York Times on politics which is, frankly, a mess of lies and lying political writers. Maureen Dowdy is one such; another is a guy named Friedman. He was a major proponent of the Arab Spring baloney alleging that Egypt, after Tahir Square, would be a fledgeling liberal democracy. Well, well. What those mostly illiterate Egyptians voted for was more Muslim Mullahs. So Friedman writes a column about flying elephants comparing that feat to predicting the fluid Middle East. He's excusing himself much as many Democrats now see Hussein Obama differently. There is something Friedman forgot though: one elephant did fly.
