Newsweek’s dancing on our graves

So that arch-liberal read-by-nobody magazine, oh pardon me, soon-to-be-online-only magazine, Newsweek in its latest issue depicts President Obama as a Napoleonic figure while the Republicans are ‘old, white and history’. I am afraid the irony has escaped the authors. So … Continue reading
