From a reader:
Subject: This has got to stop
I know you’ve been friendly with Andrew Sullivan before (only as friends!! only as friends!!) and you’re always the Sensible Beatle in the Corner, so could you please—for the love of all that is True and Noble—put some kind of truce in effect into this exhaustingly boring, overly personal mêlée between NRO and Andrew? This is clearly not getting anyone anywhere and makes all parties concerned look bad. I know, I know, he’s such a jerk to Ramesh, and I feel Ramesh’s pain, but Andrew is simply unhinged and even those sympathetic must view him—as, say, we do Rush Limbaugh—as right a lot but clearly unfair to his opponents at times.
Idea: maybe half-jokingly suggest that only one link per site, per day between NRO and andrewsullivan.com […]? Just thinkin’ out loud, bro, you’re the genius.
Please help. Our great refuge The Corner gets tedious when all this goes on.
Me: I can’t speak for anyone else, but as I’m slated to review Andrew’s book for NRODT, I will endeavor (once again) to maintain radio silence at least until I get that done.
