Osama bin Laden is evidently reading the Z blog…

Obviously. Because scintillating commentator and analyst David Brooks said so. On the PBS Newshour (well, it IS an hour long, but is it news?), Brooks was talking about the latest videotape by Osama bin Laden, and Brooks said:

…I mean, on one hand, he’s a malevolent guy who killed 3,000 Americans. But you read this thing, and it’s like he’s been sitting around reading lefty blogs, and he’s one of these childish people posting rants at the bottom the page, you know, Noam Chomsky and all this stuff. You can’t help read it and not laugh at it, occasionally, because it is just absurd. It’s flying this way, and that way, weird conspiracy theories, and mortgages, global warming. He throws it all in there. The one thing that leapt out — and Bruce Hoffman and the others mentioned this — was how Western it is. And a friend of mine, Reuel Gerecht, points out that there’s this argument that Western ideas never permeated into the Arab world, but in fact it’s all — I mean, a lot of the worst ideas from the West have permeated in, and he’s picked up Noam Chomsky, and he’s picked up some of the anti-globalization stuff. And that’s what infuses this. [Read more here.]

And since this website is where Noam blogs, then logically bin Laden MUST be reading the Z blog.
