FACT-CHECKING the increasingly risible Tom Friedman. “Friedman’s problem is that he knows little or nothing about Minnesota politics. He implies that today’s Republican legislative candidates have only limited appeal because they are too extreme. But he fails to mention that in 2010, the GOP captured both houses of Minnesota’s legislature in a stunning sweep, winning the Senate for the first time since it became a partisan body some decades ago.” Just remember, his foreign reporting probably isn’t any better, just harder to check.
