My dad recently took out a subscription to Time. Well, I suppose someone has to. I’m not sure if they do a European edition or what, but the one he’s been getting seems to be from Bizarro-World.
Last week’s described Rick “I am not a Libertarian, people shouldn’t be left alone” Santorum as a “Goldwater-style conservative”. No, seriously, it did. (Said it like it was a bad thing, too.)
And this week’s – March 5th, if anyone cares – has a big piece on the greatest threat to European economic integration. Guess what that is. Greek default? Germany deciding it ain’t gonna be nobody’s shmo no more? The utter lack of democracy in the EU? No, no, no. It’s our old chum – gasp! – xenophobia. The big Euro-tent is burning down around their ears, and they’re still worrying about that bitch France looking at Romania a bit funny.
Oh, and inflation is caused by wage claims, in case you were wondering. Come back Ted Heath, all is forgiven. And bring your prices and incomes policy with you.
With nuttiness like that, it’s almost as if the legacy media have a death wish.
