Alterman - Not an Altar Boy
Eric Alterman has unleashed his new blog
upon us this week. I am always intrigued by reasonable lefties, as a valuable antidote to my own drooling right-wing churlishness, so I stopped by. Evidently overcome by the euphoria of slipping the bonds of conventional journalism, AlteredMan asks us:
"In the meantime, isn’t Drudge a dick for doing that story on David Brock checking into a mental institution last summer? "
I have only performed a "brain-search", but I am highly confident that this is not the style of wit and rhetoric employed by Sullivan
, the InstantMan
, the Volokh Conspiracy
, or, frankly, anyone I read regularly. But if (Not a Good) Alternative wants to compete for the space occupied by Howard Stern and the Yahoo message boards, I say he should go for it. And just keep going.
