Skip to comments.Evan Thomas Compares Donald Rumsfeld to Satan in The New York Times

Former Newsweek correspondent Evan Thomas famously described Barack Obama on MSNBC as standing above the world, hes sort of God." In a Sunday New York Times book review of a new book by Donald Rumsfeld, he implies Rumsfeld is sort of Satan.
The book is titled When the Center Held, about the brief presidency of Gerald Ford. Thomas reached for John Bunyans 17th-century Christian allegory The Pilgrims Progress for metaphors about Ford:
Rumsfeld has written a kind of modern-day Pilgrims Progress about a good and godly man who enters the Slough of Despond (Washington, D.C.), is tried and tempted, but ascends to Celestial City with his virtue intact. That the narrator is a figure who has been likened in some quarters to Beelzebub makes the story more interesting, or at least curious.

Rummy’s like..what?! My name’s not Trump. I’m retired
For Obama worshippers, anyone who does not bow before The Lyin’ King is eeeeeeevil.
Evan Thomas’s father or grandfather started the COMMUNIST PARTY in the USA!
Oh, the insanity!
Don’t forget Rumsfeld was batting all along on the same team as Bush, Obama, Cheney, Clinton and Rove.
Against America, and against the People.
I guess we should start saying “Allahu Obama.
The stupidity in that photo still makes me laugh.
Sure, bash the 85-year old retired guy. Such class!
This moron seems not to realize that both Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney served as Chief of Staff to his centrist hero, Jerry Ford.
sic semper tyrannis! ("Thus always to tyrants")
Any Republican still subscribing to Newsweek should be declared mentally incompetant.
Isn’t Newsweek distributed for free at methadone clinics now?
the author is an unknown unknown ...
Ha ha ha ash hole, I guess “Hitler” was “taken.”
Evan Thomas, are you mixed up, or did you get a double dose of the wacky tabbacky?
The left worships satan, and I never got the impression they even liked Rumsfeld, so to compare him is quite a compliment.
Well, if it’s not “Satan”, it’s “Hitler”, if it’s not “Hitler”, it’s “Nazi”...it’s the left’s way of expressing and emphasizing their hatred for, well, everything.
This name-calling is so 3rd grade, and the conservatives I know stopped reacting to “name calling” back when their Mamas taught them “Sticks and Stones”.
If you’ve got kids, you know that a “catered-to” tantrum never ends...ignore it, and a child’s short attention span will soon lead him/her to other forms of “entertainment”.
It’s also the leftist journalists (aren’t they all) way of signaling their cohorts of their bona fide liberal slant.
It’s getting so old, and silly.
methinks thomas is projecting
