Things I Did Not Anticpate


A Ross Douthat column I agree with almost entirely. In particular, I agree that JFK deserves far more of the blame for Vietnam than he usually gets, and I don’t find assertions that he was going to extricate the U.S. from that quagmire remotely plausible.

And while Frank Rich is a half-step better than Oliver Stone in the sense that at least he doesn’t seem to believe that JFK was some kind of left-wing radical who threatened the establishment, he still relies on the same kind of half-assed functionalism as Stone (and Naomi Wolf.)   The fact that lots of people hated JFK doesn’t prove that this caused Oswald to assassinate him.
