Kevin D. Williamson of National Review is a talented writer.
Over the years, I've offered him many plaudits. In fact, our prestigious jury awarded Williamson blogging's highest honor in 2014 ("Blog Post of the Year") and 2013 ("Columnist of the Year").
So it would seem rather odd to see this today:
Which I assume is the result of a critical column I wrote in July, entitled, "Maybe Kevin D. Williamson Should be Writing for Politico."
I consider that particular critique fairly well-thought and reasoned, reasonably eloquent, and notionally devoid of cartoonish nomenclature (as opposed to tarring an individual who believes in Separation of Powers a "WHINO" as Williamson did, which prompted my response).
Blocking a blogger for objecting to name-calling seems quite fitting for Democrats, and therefore the GOP establishment. It seems rather odd for a so-called conservative (he writes for National Review, ya know) to use such a measure.
But, given NR's well-documented drift leftward, this kind of reactionary and insecure measure shouldn't really come as any surprise.
