Joe Klein: Bigot

The following quote, from Time Magazine propagandist Joe Klein, has to be seen to be believed. I had to re-read it at least three times to reassure myself the guy had said something so gobstoppingly stupid. In a Politico profile of columnist Charles Krauthammer, Klein actually says:

"There's something tragic about him, too," Klein said, referring to Krauthammer's confinement to a wheelchair, the result of a diving accident during his first year of medical school. "His work would have a lot more nuance if he were able to see the situations he's writing about."

Klein, whose bitter personal animus towards anyone who dares disagree with his pretentious Liberal "journalist" sensibilities is the singular feature of his writing, long ago gave up any pretense towards being a reasonable observer, even for an opinion columnist, but this is way beyond the pale.

Seriously, Time: why does this clown still have a job?
