His Mother Was a Hamster, His Father Smelled of Elderberries - Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times is the classic schlock foreign correspondent -- one who goes abroad so that he can write about America with a certain sneer that is strangely reminiscent of the French during the Dreyfus Affair. As a Harvard man, he knows the solutions to all of this country's problems: ban guns, make peace with our enemies (like North Korea) and fight terrorism by fighting poverty. His Opinion column in the New York Times is everything that one expects to hear from a brie-eating, illegal maid-hiring, Clinton-loving Harvard graduate. A typical limosine liberal who supports the public schools by sending his kids to elite private schools, and helps the poor by hiring them to polish his Mercedes.
