Can we deport Arianna Huffington?

Just saw that idiotic woman on ABC's "This Week," and as always, it was like fingernails on a blackboard. George Will had just referenced the year 1937, when industrial production plummeted -- eight years after the Crash and five years into the New Deal -- as evidence that the New Deal did not actually solve economic problems. At which point Arianna cut in with, "Oh, George, zat's vun of zee meeths of conservatives . . ."

No, Arianna, it's not myth, it's a fact. And I hope you invested all the ill-gotten gains of your divorce settlement in Citigroup, GM and Wachovia stock.

UPDATE: Here's video:

Two books of particular relevance are Amity Shlae's The Forgotten Man and Burt Folsom's New Deal Or Raw Deal.


  1. Robert, I wholeheartedly concur with you (as usual!)

    Let me take the liberty to repeat here some questions I had for the trollers who come to my blog who believe Arianna is some sort of diety:

    Can anyone explain why Arianna Stassinopoulos still uses her former husband's last name?

    Or how after 12 years together she had no clue that her hubby was gay?

    Or how did she miraculously alter her political leanings after her partner lost his Senate run in 94'?

    Or why does her divorce agreement remain secret till this day???

    Or why she can't take accent reduction classes???

    If divulging Jack Ryan's divorce papers is alright to serve the interests of B. Hussein Obama, then how about Arianna's?

  2. The best book of them all on the New Deal is Jim Powell's _FDR's Folly_.
