Joe Klein on Charles Krautheimer: you'd be better without that wheelchair, buddy....

In the tasteless comment of the month you've got to give it to Time's Joe Klein, talking about conservative columnist Charles Krautheimer:

"He became ground zero among the neo-cons, but he's vastly smarter than most of them," said Time's Joe Klein, an admirer and critic who praised Krauthammer's "writing skills and polemical skills" as "so far above almost anybody writing columns today."

"There's something tragic about him, too," Klein said, referring to Krauthammer's confinement to a wheelchair, the result of a diving accident during his first year of medical school. "His work would have a lot more nuance if he were able to see the situations he's writing about."

Yeah, Joe, like the governor of New York might be doing a better job if he could actually see the problems of the people in his State, too, right?

FYI Steve: Note the spelling of Krauthammer's last name. :-)

Joe Klein's a piece of shit. No two ways about it.

Oh so shocking that he's an Obamabot.
