    Portside publicists like Victor Navasky and Barbara Ehrenreich are not wracked with guilt. They are what Thomas Sowell called ‘one up-ers”. Trashing their own society is a self-aggrandizing act.

    Mr. Hannan is one of the more interesting thinkers out there and always worth a read. But I find myself less willing to spend the time doing so when he writes this kind of rubbish:
