    Default The Genius of Charles Krauthammer

    His sentences are short and full of punch. And he has a rare ability to distill issues and ideas down to compact, searing polemics. Consequently, his columns have done immense damage to Barack Obama. No wonder the Irish Left hates him so much, writing non-stop whinge letters to the Irish Times calling for his column to be dropped. The Irish Left's campaign against his predecessor Mark Steyn intimidated the IT into dropping his column. Let's hope it doesn't happen to his successor. As a John McCain supporter, I want to salute the unique genius of Charles Krauthammer.

    No, the Irish Times dropped Steyn because he was out where the buses don't run.
    Much as I disagree with Krauthammer's columns, at least they make a vague attempt at coherent arguments.

    Well the man makes neo-cons look like Maoists but he has needled the Obama campaign pretty well alright.

    Whenever I see him on tv in the States he reminds me of the mad scientist in the wheelchair in the film 'How I learned to Love the Bomb and stop Worrrying' ,one of three roles played by peter sellers in the film.

    Hear hear.

    A scintillating polemiscist who has an unerring ability to cut through the noise and bullshit and distill the issues down to their core components. His dissection today of the hyprocrisy and cant of Obama was magisterial and unanswerable.

    I notice at least one letter a week from pathetic anti-intellectual leftists unable to handle opposing points of view calling for him to be axed. Thankfully to date Madam has stood firm. In doing so she has provided an invaluable service to her readers and, no doubt, most of her journalists. Neocons are despised and dismissed here as oil-deranged loons with no knowledge or understanding of the rest of the world outside of Washington DC. Any fair reader of Krauthammer would have to acknowledge that, even if he completely disagreed with the politics, there is a supremely serious and engaged mind at work
    Opposing socialist propaganda in all its devious forms.
    Supporting enterprise and truth.
