Being a blogger quickly teaches you how poor a weapon blogging is for killing off zombie ideas. Still, try we must. A little bit ago, I addressed myself to Doctor Ben Carson’s ridiculous claim that the Twitter criticism he receives is evidence that the United States is like Nazi Germany, a claim that should disqualify him from having anyone take him seriously for at least the next 307 years. (It won’t, but it should.)
Then, this weekend, Mike Huckabee said this: “I’m beginning to think there’s more freedom in North Korea sometimes than there is in the United States.”
I’d say there are millions of North Koreans who’d disagree with him, but the trouble is that if they did, their government would arrest them and their entire family for saying so.
