Occasional correspondent Wayne Sanderson fires in an email:
Jeesus Tim, your feckin’ hypocrisy knows no bounds. Quiggin silent on Kyoto, huh? Well, he’s well capable of addressing that.
But what happened to Tim “big mouth” Blair on issues like Iraq, soon to be the Athens of the Middle East, throwing flowers before the liberating Americans? Or your other love interest (aside from Howard), Bush? Regularly we used to be told about his brilliance, his towering popularity. Now the dill has been exposed for the useless dill he is on every issue, domestic and international you care to mention, and nothing from Tim. Nothing on his bottom sucking poll figures.
What about “only a few bad apples on one night” involved with torture … at least Andrew Sullivan and even Instapundit (once) have pursued Bush and Rumsfeld over that sordid mess. Nothing from Blair. (Even though it has helped to bring undone the US occupation of Iraq – something you were sooooo in favour of.)
Oh, and as for Kyoto … that’d be the treaty you confidently and joyously said on a number of occasions would never be ratified. Umm? And global warming? The thing that was soooo not happening, according to Tim. Even Ron Bailey at reason has had the good grace to acknowledge he was wrong about that. Nothing from Blair.
The stand out feature of your blog is the issues and reports you don’t touch. (As I’ve said before, if Margo didn’t exist, most days you’d have nothing to write about.)
To turn around and talk about someone else being silent on an issue makes you just about the most shameless hypocrite I have ever seen in any walk of life, just this side of paedophile priests.
Tim Blair and paedophile priests. A perfect match. I hope John gives it to you with both barrels seeing as you’ve been so stupid to lead with your chin. You’ve sure got it coming.
