Sorry, but I've subscribed to the Post for more than forty years, and I assure
you that it routinely publishes op-eds that are diametrically opposed to the

position--just as George Will's periodic columns about global warming are the
polar opposite of the Post's position on that subject.

seriousness) could miss the fact - and the paper did not publish a paragraph
distancing itself from the offensive opinion proffered. So it endorses it by

I note that the Washington Post, spiritual home of Trump Derangement
Syndrome, continues its descent into the world of tabloid drivel.
