Paging James Piereson

by Jonah Goldberg

Frank Rich’s essay on Kennedy and Obama is a weird, at times interesting, at times astoundingly tendentious affair on how the “hate that ended” JFK’s presidency “is eerily familiar” to the hate aimed at Obama. But as Rich circuitously acknowledges in the essay, JFK’s presidency wasn’t in fact ended by hate, it was ended by a Communist assassin.
