The son of Chas Freeman, President Obama's pick for National Intelligence Council chairman, has a message for his father's detractors: I want to punch you in the nose.
"They are low-lives," Charles Freeman writes of his dad's critics. "And if you're among them and by chance read this: I still want to punch you in the face. You'd deserve it, you schmucks."Media CEO creates London bus signs affirming God
More to the point, the younger Freeman says "the attack by groups interested in issues about which he's been impolitic in the past doesn't particularly surprise him (or me). My Dad has been vocal on the dangers of established maxims about blind faith (in Israel) and blind antagonism (with China). That will get you in trouble quick, and it has, if you have any political sensibility. The problem with -- and the great virtue of -- my Dad is that he has no political sensibility at all."
