New York TImes FAIL

Why oh why can't we have a better press corps? Ben of Unfogged on the New York Times and Ross Douthat:

Those little sluts: Via Bërubë... that other CT thread... about the 70s and how that explains (and I suppose also excuses) everything. Now here is a question for you. Douthat's role as a Times columnist is, as I understand it, to espouse conservative opinions while also occasionally saying things that a nonconservative can read with agreement, thinking, "I guess he is worth looking at occasionally--I mean he's not totally off his rocker". (Let's set aside the question of why Douthat's being a conservative might have led him to defend the one true and universal church in this instance, especially via so paradoxical and idiotic an argument.) Surely this is a gimme! One wouldn't have to venture very far into the land of the sane to write 750 words about how, hey, child abuse, maybe not so nice. Plus it would let him give exhibit some moral clarity...
