Conor Friedersdorf is NOT a hack

Mischief Or Justice, Ctd - The Daily Dish | By Andrew Sullivan:
"I am out of my depth here, so consider Frum's argument and these rebuttals to be me airing both sides of the argument – and if David responds I'll let you all know."

I was mistaken about Conor. He is not a hack. I am not sure the proper word is for someone that can't decide which side of "it is a good idea to prosecute torturers" is likely to be correct but hack doesn't really do justice to the level of cowardice it takes to not make a choice.

Any intelligent person that cannot bring themselves to make a decision on this (one way or the other, there IS an argument to be made each way) doesn't deserve to have the size of megaphone that Conor has.

The worst part of this is that Conor seems to have started off thinking that it was NOT a bad idea and has somehow been moved to "gee I am not sure".
