You might be aware by now that Noam Chomsky is this year's choice for the Sydney Peace Prize and that, as a night-follows-day kind of result, Murdoch's Australian is on another of its crusades. You know the sort of thing: Chomsky has the hots for Pol Pot, bin Laden and Gaddafi, and anybody who disagrees hates, nay loathes, himself.
Anyways, its editorialist has dished out the following priceless advice to the Sydney Peace Foundation:
"If the SPF wants to turn its back on the usual puerility, it should consider awarding next year's prize to The Australian's Greg Sheridan, whose cogent case against continuing the war in Afghanistan made Chomsky's rantings look pedestrian." (Perfect choice for peace prize: Noam Chomsky panders to self-loathing among the Left, 3/6/11)
Never let it be said that The Australian hasn't got a sense of humour.
