My Father was a Simpleton

No, not MY father, but that’s the theme of this op-ed by one Marie Myung-Ok Lee in yesterday’s New York Times. Why, for example, was her father a dedicated Republican? “For one thing, the platform is easy to understand.” And so it continues, as she continuously portrays her dad as a simpleton to publish an essay disguised as lighthearted child-of-immigrants humor, but that really involves throwing her late father under the bus to score a few cheap and not terribly erudite political points. Some boundaries, please.
