I Say


a nice thing about one of Andrew Sullivan’s guest-bloggers, and suddenly the other guest-bloggers are gushing about me. Reihan Salam speculates that I am the evil genius–”scarily smart,” he calls me–who got the Bush administration to back down from comprehensive tax reform. Steven Menashi adopts Noah Millman’s suggestion that Sullivan start a “Ponnuru Award” for “principled opposition to a partisan position.” As gratifying, not to mention mind-boggling, as all this praise is, especially considering the sources, I don’t think I can accept any of it.
