What does it say about TLF, the NYT's pundit di tutti punditti, that he adores China and despises Israel?
That he's a self-satisfied, self-important leftist twit?
That his head has been stuck up his arse for so long that he'd be blinded by the light of reality should he ever endeavour to remove it?
That, in taking stock of his much-vaunted insights and predictions over the years, it turns out he's as clueless as all get out?
Yes. Yes. And Yes.
