Can someone read J. Kirchick's attack on Kay Steiger and explain it to me. Basically, he seems to have seen that a liberal group was running an article about Che Guevera, so he flipped on the Conservative Pundit Autopilot and started attacking her. But Kay's piece isn't favorable to Che! But the Autopilot can't be disengaged so the attack must go on! Bizarre. At any rate, given the quality of work being done at Commentary by the likes of Kirchick and Schoenfeld, the J-Pod Accession will almost certainly improve the average quality of the personnel.

UPDATE: Turns out Matt Duss made the exact same J-Pod joke.
