Gail Collins, "The Almost Year-End Quiz": The Question Not Asked by Collins

Gail Collins, founder of the Bonbon School of Journalism, today provides a deliciously cute list of questions for her readership in her latest New York Times op-ed entitled "The Almost Year-End Quiz" (http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2013/11/30/opinion/30collins-quiz.html). (In case you were asking, no, I could not bring myself to read through this "opinion piece.")

The question which goes unasked by Gail:

Which of the following columnists was the most abject apologist for the Obama administration over the past year?:

A) Thomas Friedman.


B) Gail Collins.


C) Paul Krugman.


D) Charles Blow.


E) Nicholas Kristof.

Yup, it's a weighty query, whose answer depends upon whether you place greater emphasis on Obama's domestic or foreign policy fish stories.

If you like, you can delay your answer until December 31. By then, perhaps it will be more apparent whether Obamacare or the president's deal with Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei is the greater catastrophe.
