Michael Goldfarb over at the Weekly Standard enjoys taking a HuffPo's analysis of the military completely apart. I'm not the smartest guy in the world, but I do generally know enough to know that I need to do my homework before publishing anything of substance. These are words of wisdom for the other Barry Sanders to heed, indeed.
Keep up the great work, Michael!
The Huffington Post routinely allows its authors to write about subjects with which they are completely unfamiliar, largely uninformed, and generally ignorant--take Laurie David and global warming for example--but today's post by Barry Sanders (I wish it was that Barry Sanders) sets a new standard. Sanders's piece is about "the military's addiction to oil," and his point is to illustrate the military's contribution to global warming, but not content merely to opine on something he didn't understand...he had to make his own facts up, too.
