Fro the Ridiculous to the Sublime

Below see how the ridiculous David Brooks got two names wrong in one sentence.

Now the sublime Matthew Yglesias (written without irony or dignity) writes about Persident "Bush getting friendly with [the late] King Fahd." I don't like Bush either but accusing him of necrophilia is a bit much.

The King of Saudi Arabia with whom Bush made nice is King Abdullah (not to be confused with King Abdullah II of Jordan (note the cool absolutely forbidden stop sign -- never seen that before) or, for that matter King Abdullah I of Jordan who was way ahead of Sadat and Rabin in getting assassinated for peace ).
