It’s one thing to have philosophical, moral, even theoretical differences about policy. To do so in an open, honest even passionate way IS the American way. But to say, ten days after Sept. 11th that you’re not sure about what side you are on in this war against Islamic Fascism is ludicrous. This guy is reeling in the high life of capitalism, living the AMERICAN dream (Notice they don’t call it the French Dream?) to the fullest extent, all the while cavorting with the likes of Castro and jet setting off to places like North Korea. I’m sure while he was there they took the opportunity to show him the Communist peoples paradise not the real starving masses.
*Note to Ted, call Sean Penn and ask him about his trip to Baghdad… So for these and so many other reasons, it gives me great pleasure to name Ted Turner as this weeks First In, “Real American Dirtbag.”
