Charles In Charge

Nearly three and a half years ago I dubbed Charles Krauthammer a True American Hero.  Most of the folks to whom I have given this honor have lived up to the title, alas some have not, but Charles Krauthammer remains one of my favorites.  I look forward to Fox News’ Brett Baier and his all-star panel and especially Mr. Krauthammer’s commentary.  His words are especially delicious when he follows the liberal “newsperson” usually seated to his right and soundly refutes their assertion.
