Gorbachev Kept His Christianity in Closet?
The good ol days when the lines were clear.
Check it out:
Did you know that Mikhail Gorbachev is a Christian? Folks, this news has the potential — you’ll never see it, but it has the potential — to really upset the left. Gorbachev! Again, for those of you who are under 30, like I said yesterday… In fact, Cookie had a great idea yesterday. It would never happen. Cookie told me that she was really moved by my opening hour monologue on American exceptionalism.
She said, “You know what? You ought to condense that into an op-ed and submit it to the New York Times. There has to be the opposing point of view in the New York Times. They’ll give Putin op-ed space; they ought to give it to you.” They never would. (interruption) No, no, no. Snerdley, they wouldn’t do it. I started yesterday by saying those of you under 30 have no idea.
If you had been born 30 or 40 years ago, something like the leader of Russia or the Soviet Union writing an op-ed in the New York Times trashing our president and our country, would have not been tolerated. It would have been an outrage. It would have been a major news story. Yesterday it’s a ho-hummer — and, by the same token, if you are 35 or 40 years old, you really do not know much about Mikhail Gorbachev.
