The Corner

Maureen Dowd Does Delhi

(Continuing my “POP POLI SCI” thread.)

India, too!

“Derb—I just read your post in the Corner. You can add India to the list

also. I am convinced there is anti-Bush stuff in the English language press

here, much of it from the NYT or WaPo (which many here thinks shows

diversity of opinion) that Pat Leahy would say goes over the top. Fareed

Zakaria looks like Richard Perle here in comparison to the average Indian

op-ed person or the routinely syndicated Maureen Dowd, Paul Krugman, and

Robert Scheer.

“My biggest laugh is how people here revere Clinton and have no clue that

Bush is a far better friend of India than Clinton ever was. But when you

have the level of corruption and the number of criminals who hold elected

office here (imagine if Sammy The Bull was a NY State Assemblyman and John

Gotti was President of a state political party), it makes Clinton seem like

a man of virtue.”

Yet another argument for bringing back the Raj?
