A reader rebukes me for paying attention to Glenn Reynolds and Mickey Kaus. If I want to know what Right Blogistan, he asks, why not read, e.g., Greg Djerijian’s Belgravia Dispatch?
Ans.: because I hadn’t heard of it. But, at a glance, it appears my reader is correct. Derijian writes well, reasons like a grown-up, and doesn’t spend all his time proving that his side is always right.
For example, Djerijian is willing to point out that Don Rumsfeld is a doubleplusungood SecDef, and that something very much like torture has been taking place everywhere the U.S. holds prisoners suspected of terrorist links.
Yes, as Brad DeLong points out, the buck doesn’t stop on Rummy’s desk. “The Cossacks work for the Czar.” Djerijian still basically admires GWB, which requires a certain amount of mental gymnstics.
Still, he joins the blogroll.
