The Definition of Insanity

Whenever I get depressed that some people think that Tom Friedman is a deep thinker, I am reminded of Fareed Zakaria's pretensions to intellect--and get more depressed.

Zakaria, who couldn't find his own buttocks with both hands and a GPS signal, thinks that President Obama can solve our problems with Iran with an outreach effort:

Obama should return to his original approach and test the Iranians to see if there is any room for dialogue and agreement. Engaging with Iran, putting its nuclear program under some kind of supervision and finding areas of common interest (such as Afghanistan) would all be important goals.

This time, I'm sure outreach will be brilliant.
