Some impressive fail at the Politico (Editors? WTF are they?):
As bad as that is, the worst part of the article is that two regional experts (Juan Cole and American University professor Josef Olmert) are interspersed with the deep thoughts of Col. Mustard and Ed Morrisey. Because all four of them are equally informed subject matter experts with valid and helpful opinions.
I’m not complaining, because I also follow that line of inquiry. When I need a medical procedure done, I often consult two doctors, and then I check with a needle junky and a crack whore. Just so I have a wide array of opinions and can keep my options open.
