One thing leads to another, they go back to Tommy’s place, they all make sweet love to and around each other, and 9 months later this bastard pops out of Friedman.
Friedman’s reasoning is that ads are everywhere nowadays, which means rich people are interacting less with not-rich people (Kaus!), and there are obvious ways this distorts the political process (Murray!), though he will not even attempt to allude to any specific examples. Because he’s pulling stuff out of the Ur-ass all centrists use as a source for their unsubstantiated bullshit.
Oh and of course Friedman cites a friend of his as an authority to back-up all the stuff he’s slinging. Spread the love around, baby.
