The Secret is Out

Now we know how Thomas Friedman can keep churning out that dreck on a regular basis.

Tip to Instapundit.

It's quite funny. But it lacks the feature of any really good column that begins a point by noting how Friedman was chatting with Known Bigshot at some Elite Conference, and while exchanging views on some Trivial Thing, came to a blinding flash of insight.

To truly mock Friedman, you should simply randomly access his actual columns from the New York Times web site. That would be devastating.

Kudos to the author of the site. It's nice to know that I am not alone in wondering how he could become a favorite pundit of the rich and famous. It truly boggles my mind that there is a class of people who believe he provides insights rather than slickly marketed banality.

Mind you, I'm not saying that you can't drown in a pool of Friedman's wisdom. But you would have to be drunk and face down to do so.
