Sully takes another shot at defending his decision to run McCaughey’s pack of lies on Clintoncare:
In my view, it had many interesting points and as an intellectual exercize in contemplating the full possible consequences of Hillary Clinton’s proposal, it was provocative and well worth running.
That is perfect summation of contemporary Slate/TNR journamalistic mores. Interesting points! Intellectual exercises! Who cares if it’s actually true or not? And who cares what impact this wonderful exercise has on the lives of millions of Americans?
Though boys throw stones at frogs in sport, the frogs do not die in sport, but in earnest.
