COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY DAVID SMITH IN THE GUARDIAN
You just keep reaching for new derogatory material.
And the items just keep getting more and more ridiculous.
This man – paid handsomely for his work, I’m sure – is doing something really sleazy.
Every book and every speech and every article written by every politician – from FDR to John Kennedy was written by ghost writers.
When David Frum, speechwriter for George Bush, happened to mention at cocktail party he wrote George Bush’s line about “axis of evil,” he was promptly fired from his post and never worked again at that level.
So what is the merit of this man’s words?
Nothing, absolutely nothing.
But they are derogatory, so the mainline press dutifully runs them.
