Mickey Kaus lobs this at Ezra Klein:
Reminder to JournoList organizer E. Klein, who likes to take it private: All communications are on the record.
Don't ever email Mickey! But he isn't being entirely accurate. There are some things Mickey won't publish:
It bothered me when folks where making totally unsubstantiated comments about [REDACTED!--mk]'s sex life, and it bothers me when folks make [REDACTED] jokes. To be clear, I'm totally open to legitimate commentary on the substance of anyone's argument, and people should get smacked down if they lie, if they get things wrong, etc. I think analyzing Peretz's writing about Mexicans, or Palestinians, or whoever, is totally fair game. But saying that [REDACTED] clearly must not have a girlfriend, or speculating about who [REDACTED] gets turned down by sexually are not arguments. We wouldn't take similar statements remotely seriously if they were made by conservatives about anyone on this list.
Even neoliberals draw the line somwhere.
