Friedman Takes on the 'Ignorant Ramblings of Sarah Palin,' Other Conservatives

Thomas Friedman's Sunday column, "Just Doing It," was a mostly unobjectionable look at start-up companies founded by immigrants and funded by venture capitalists, focusing on Endostim, a medical device company in St. Louis. But Friedman couldn't contain his anti-conservative snideness forever. Here's the Last paragraph:

You don't hear much about companies like this. Our national debate today is dominated by the ignorant ramblings of Sarah Palin, talk-show lunatics, tea parties and politics as sports - not ESPN but PSPN. Fortunately, though, we still have risk-takers who are not paying attention to any of this nonsense, who know what world they're living in - and are just doing it. Thank goodness!
