The Corner

Equal Pay, Equal Standards

Matt Yglesias, Kevin Drum, and John Holbo—in increasing order of turgidity—take me on for contesting Hillary Clinton’s claim that John McCain thinks that paying women less for equal work is “okay.” Rather than make counterarguments, I’ll just give in and adopt their standards. I can now say that people who want to weaken or repeal the Patriot Act are okay with terrorism. They’re not willing to take the measures I consider necessary to deal with the problem, after all.
