why do people un-ironically RT David Frum I mean honestly 😖

us pol, birdsite 

@ashfurrow should I be glad I don't have any idea who David Frum is?

us pol, birdsite 

@yakkoj eh yeah, that’s probably for the best

us pol, birdsite 

@ashfurrow you don't like him because he's a neocon?

us pol, birdsite 

@InternetKevin I don’t like him because he pushed for the Iraq invasion and now writes for The Atlantic. No accountability for the lives he helped to destroy, and liberals have rehabilitated his public image. Awful.

@ashfurrow Thing is though, most of the democrats voted for the war as well, so there wouldn't be that many talking heads left if everyone got held accountable for their actions.

@ashfurrow Frum also benefits the liberal media, who can say "look even the conservatives think Trump is a total disgrace."

us pol, birdsite 

@InternetKevin yes, that’s true. And I dislike a lot of public intellectuals for this reason – I think the world would improve considerably if we got all new talking heads. But Frum was Bush’s speech writer. He pushed for it in a way no one else did.

I also just find him very smarmy. Truly, one of the worst Canadians.

@ashfurrow the liberal media have more or less rehabilitated the whole of the Bush family. Whitewashed recent history. For the sake of appearing "not too far to the left"? I don't know.

us pol, birdsite 

@InternetKevin indeed, and you raise a good question: “not too far to the left of whom?” and the conclusion I’ve come to is: media corporations.

us pol, birdsite 

@ashfurrow it's like a mantra for CNN and MSNBC. "are the democrats moving too far to the left? Let's just throw that out there and hopefully viewers will buy it"

us pol, birdsite 

@ashfurrow and how could I forget Fox News. Anything left of the bigot zone is too extreme for them.

@ashfurrow more than frightening to think that a white supremacist sexual predator who has committed crimes in office, can still be argued to be a better president than president Bush
