Mary Anastasia O'Grady, Unhinged
Jeffrey Goldberg, The Atlantic
If I didn't know better, I would say that Mary Anastasia O'Grady, the Wall Street Journal polemicist who never met a fascist Central American oligarch she didn't like, is preparing to invade the Bay of Pigs all over again. Her column today, attacking Goldblog for interviewing Fidel Castro, is almost pathological in its disregard for reality. O'Grady is a prime proponent of a five-decade-old Cuba policy that has failed utterly to dislodge the Castro brothers. But why let failure get in the way of consistency?
