Although scholars of the history of the NY Times Op-Ed pages may be able to find a more vile Op-Ed, I dare them.

From Paul Kane, a suggestion that the United States sell-out Taiwan to China in exchange for forgiveness of $1.14 trillion in debt, To Save Our Economy, Ditch Taiwan:

Rick Perry has been right to do the talk show circuit in the wake of Wednesday’s brain freeze, and he has been more impressive in the interviews I have seen in the last 24 hours than in any appearance since he announced in August.  Perhaps if Perry did the circuit two months ago his...

Of course that’s not the case.  Believe him or not, Herman Cain stood at a podium and addressed the charges and took reporter questions.

Not so Karen Kraushaar, who has multiple (we don’t know how many) employment claims to her credit.  Kraushaar will only reveal details of her still secret claim against...
