    MJT: Can you boil down your case against him into a couple of sentences or paragraphs?

    Quite a bit more at the link but it would be unfair to bring over anymore. Pretty good stuff. While both controversial and often just plain crazy, Chomsky is one of the last of the lingering left wing intellectuals. But that just makes it more fun to see him brought down.

    I know it's a bit long but enjoy. It's worth a read (link) Enough that I'm ready to buy the book.

    Chomsky called the Iraq outcome far closer than the Bush administration did.

    'Chomsky'....?

    Sounds like an outlaw food group in New York.

    Sounds like a hack-job.

    Unsurprisingly, they greatly differ on their geopolitical views. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the one minute of deep thought on the OP/link. :D

    I understand Charles Manson and Jim Jones had much the same effect.

    Right. It's very hack-y to differ from Chomsky on ones geopolitical views.
