My only comment after a quick read of the NYTimes the last couple of days was "has Safire always been this much of a cluefuck?". Understand that in the days when newspapers were, well, paper, I was a Washington Post reader, not a Times reader (no comics? get outta here!) so it's a legitimate question - I really didn't read him very often. I discarded the notion that, like George Will at the Post, he's kept around just to make the more liberal columnists seem even more on the ball than they really are as I suspect it's more because no one has the heart to ask him to leave after 30 years.

And, in the interest of full disclosure, I actually agreed with a surprising amount of Will's column today (there's a first time for everything I suppose) - I just suspect I have VERY different reasons for coming to some of the same conclusions.
