    Oh yeah Mead. Of course things like this never happen in red states.

    Check this out. Arkansas Senator Jason Rapert basically comes out and accuses – as if this were some kind of big time offense – Obama of being a muslim. The crowd cheers. Where’s Professor Mead’s indignant rage!

      At his best – which is pretty often – Professor Mead is a sharp social critic, and his articles on the future of the developed world in a post industrial economy are an outstanding contribution to our national conversation. But pieces like this make him look less like a top tier public intellectual and more like a talk radio hack.

      In New York, a lecher uses his political position to avoid being held accountable for his lechery.
      Why yes, these are totally the same thing.
