Daniel Pipes -- American Idiot

Joining forces with the "intellectual tour de vacuum" that is Michelle Malkin, Daniel Pipes has a frightening bit of fascism and bigotry to propose, ending an awful year on an appropriate note.

In summary it is a blatant endorsement of denying civil liberties, even to the point of interning Islamic Americans in internment camps. Go read it for yourself and you will see.

And this, as Juan Cole notes, gets published in a major American paper. That is almost as disturbing.

There hasn't been a more offensive major newspaper editorial this year, certainly a notable, if dubious, accomplishment in 2004.
