    There has been a fair amount of discussion about Jennifer Rubin’s bonafides as a “conservative” columnist, but in the offering you present today, one has to ask where she get’s her analogies from. She writes of Iran “snubbing it’s nose….”. WAPO never did have editors worth their salt.

    • http://grumpyelder.com/ Grumpy

      Bob.. Rubin might as well be on John McCain’s staff.. She’s no conservative, most of the time she’s nothing but a parrot for the very worst of the GOP Establishment..

      For some reason I need to find a way to fix, she shows up in this feed, it’s twitter based.. I think she shows up because conservatives tweet what she writes, to show other conservatives how asinine she is..

        Yeah, all these beltway types want us to be ruled by them, but they don’t know how to pronounce “corpsman”, don’t know that three-year-olds aren’t ready to be “educated” and confuse “thumbing their nose” with “snubbing”. Thing about it is, the editors probably thought “Well, close enough. Everybody knows what she meant. Close enough. Kind of like the Common Core math curriculum where the kids get credit for showing the steps they used to get the answer….which was wrong.
