Take a look at this April 27, 2009 column by coup daydreamer John L. Perry, who's identified as a "regular columnist for Newsmax.com." The title--"Obama, the Puppet President"--gives you a sense of where Perry's going, but the really good stuff comes at the end (Perry's a good finisher, apparently):
[I]s there some individual, off stage, who instructed the president of
the United States to perform that embarrassing, 180-degrees reversal [on torture prosecutions]?
If so, who is that master puppeteer?
TPM has posted Newsmax's response to that Obama-coup column. Rachel Slajda does a nice job highlighting the hollowness of spokesperson Paula Pradine's claim that John L. Perry has "no official relationship" with Newsmax. But another Pradine claim--namely, that Perry's column was descriptive rather than proscriptive--is allowed to go unchallenged.
