Coda to the Colin Powell endorsement saga: Powell tells The Times’ Maureen Dowd about the kind of email he received after appearing on Meet the Press. There were missives calling Powell “unconstitutional and unbiblical,” of course, but one in particular stood out. “He got a mass email from a man wanting to spread the word that Obama was reading a book about the end of America written by a fellow Muslim,” Dowd writes. Surprised, Powell clicked over to Amazon.com. The book was The Post-American World. The author was Fareed Zakaria. It seems even the rumor-mongering emailers are getting desperate.
