Just finally read the David Brooks column on Michael Moore, to find this quote:
“You’re stuck with being connected to this country of mine, which is known for bringing sadness and misery to places around the globe.” In Liverpool, he paused to contemplate the epicenters of evil in the modern world: “It’s all part of the same ball of wax, right? The oil companies, Israel, Halliburton.”
So one second, let me get this straight: we’re in bed both with the Saudis and with the Israelis? Well, at least we all know where he’s coming from now.
