POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

This is good news on all sides.

First, Frum, a bag of wind who has worked with America’s ugliest neo-cons in advocating American imperialism all over the globe, loses his post.

But perhaps more important, this act is a sharp confirmation of what the American think tanks actually are, propaganda mills play acting as academic institutions.

The American Enterprise Institute, the Heritage Foundation, and the Cato Institute all operate on the same basis as those television commercials for over-the-counter remedies featuring actors in white lab coats pretending to be doctors.

They offer only one point of view, always.

And now we know they don’t even keep staff who even once do not toe the line.
