I watched the HBO documentary about Richard Holbrooke entitled The Diplomat this weekend.
Umm … folks … this is why the media gets a bad name.
I think Richard Holbrooke was an amazing guy, a real hero or our age.
But, as near as I can figure, the documentary doesn’t have anyone in it who I’d identify as Republican or conservative.
I understand that Holbrooke worked in foreign service almost exclusively in Democratic administrations. Even so, I think I would have dismissed the documentary as a hack without watching it if anyone had told me that there’s nothing in there explaining why Republicans had no interest in him.
