Truculent Tom Friedman

Today on WBUR's On Point, New York Times columnist Tom Friedman launched into this embarrasing tirade when a caller criticized his former support for the war in Iraq:

I'm really sorry. Next time... I promise, I really promise, I will be a better liberal. I will not in any way support any effort to bring democracy to a country ruled by an oil-backed tyranny. I promise I will never do that again. I promise I will be a better liberal. I will view the prospect of Arabs forging democracy as utterly impossible. They’re incapable of democracy.

Easy there, Tom.

Can someone remind me why this guy is a bestselling author and wildly influential journalist?
