This is just embarrassing. Grant that he’s already burnt a lot of bridges behind him in an apparent quest to become the Most Famous Republican Who Hates Everything About Republicans — a tough competition with Peggy Noonan these days — but did David Frum really have to go after Michelle Malkin?
Having expended much energy lately in an attempt to prevent a thermonuclear blogwar meltdown — evidently with no luck, given the latest ugly incident — I feel a need to emphasize once again just how much I hate this kind of stuff.
There is no rule that every conservative must like (or agree with) every other conservative, but why permit mere dislike or disagreement to become the basis for an all-or-nothing vendetta?
Why push it to the point that your friends feel so embarrassed — indeed, mortified — by your purposeful insults to their other friends?
David, you’re wrong, and I don’t mean incorrect, I mean wrong.
You ought to apologize and re-think whatever the hell you were thinking that got you so far down this road, or else you’ll finish your career guest-blogging at Little Green Footballs.
