GORBACHEV SAYS COMMUNISM A HOAX. Writing on The Corner on National Review Online Jonah Goldberg says “Mikhail Gorbachev finally admits Communism was a hoax,” and teasingly adds, “Now could someone please call the guys at the Nation and let them know?”

Oddly enough, when I first read Gorbachev’s comments last night, I had a flashback to some of the recent material written by and about David Brock. Like Brock’s recent writings, Gorbachev basically just called himself a liar and a hypocrite. In Gorbachev’s case, for supporting a system that sent millions to their deaths.

Well, at least he’s finally figured it out.
