    Another familiar tool in Imus' shed.

    Too easy.

    Meant Friedman, specifically, in context . . . but yes, quite right.

    This is pretty funny - Tom Friedman's 11,000 sq ft house- Mr Green himself.

    Tom's new book :

    "Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution--And How It Can Renew America."

    Yeah sure Tom. Bet you did not put a picture of your house in the book.

    I met Taibbi last week when he was at my school and came to talk with my class. When a couple of us brought up Friedman, he just laughed and said: "low-hanging fruit"

    Dude married into mega-money. His wife is a billionaire. Several times over.

    Taibbi is an amazing writer, who doesn't even bother to try to hide the fact that he makes Olbermann look like Rush Limbaugh.

    Rolling Stone would be better suited to use him as a columnist rather than pretend his stories are actual unbiased journalism.

    Who said they are pretending? He makes his agenda pretty obvious ... would it be any better or different with an "analysis" tag or a column sig ?

    Yeah, it would... I don't think they're trying to hide anything, but they really need to make it 100 percent clear that it's a column.
