I Really Must stop Reading Andrew Sullivan

The Quiet End To Roe v. Wade? - The Dish | By Andrew Sullivan - The Daily Beast:
"My italics. The logic of the whole piece is that this is a likely future, not a present reality. But it's easy to misread. What's dismaying is that this sloppy sentence leads Ponnuru to dismiss Lithwick's entire body of work as fallacious. It's anything but."

Because he keeps giving hacks a pass when they willfully misrepresent something that is said. The sentence in question is not "easy to misread" if you are, like Ramesh Ponnuru, a summa cum laude graduate of one of the top 10 universities in the world. I seemed to comprehend it just fine despite being in a significantly weakened state of mental agility and having a degree from only a lowly Canadian school.
