Julian Sanchez elbows Mark Krikorian for straw-manning vegetarians:

I know very many vegetarians and vegans. I do not think a single one of them...holds the view that “animals are morally equivalent to humans.”  File this under what is fast becoming one of my chief pet peeves: People who purport to specialize in political commentary and show no sign of having even the vaguest idea what people with different views actually believe.

"Straw-manning". Did I really write that as a verb?
