The Corner


After “blegging” for a conservative/NRO to address the Mary Cheney thing on his terms (does Sullivan know “bleg” is a word coined by John Derbyshire? The horror, the horror) Andrew Sullivan chooses to ignore my column on the issue and instead cite an email I posted “approvingly” which is far more convenient to his increasingly shrill story line that conservatives are bigots when they disagree with him. For the record, the email was in response to someone else’s email. I do this often (but I’ll stop if readers think it’s tedious). But that hardly means I agree or disagree with the content or phrasing of a particular email. That is, of course, unless I say something along the lines of “I agree with this guy” or some such.
