John Podhoretz takes umbridge. Something about the Marquis of Queensbury rules and why conservative gentlemen insist on bringing a knife to a gun fight. They don’t win the fight but they are invited to simply the best parties.
Alas, I suspect “Spengler’s” days at First Things are now numbered.
Not sure how “faux” Podhoretz’s outrage is. What’s fascinating is the spectacle of an only-slightly-above-average mind trying to figure out how another man, whom he avers is “brilliant and cultivated,” could dare to raise candid questions regarding Obama’s ethnic background — when in fact only a brilliant and cultivated man would, and could.
