Ex-Bush 43 aide Peter Wehner has responded to my criticism of his piece on Sarah Palin and Herman Cain. The link over at Commentary is here and I am happy to repeat his interesting, policy driven beginning. Below. With my answer coming in the near future.
Thanks to Pete. He’s obviously not a happy camper, and I repeat that my criticisms are not personal. They go to a much larger issue and I will respond to him in the near future. But it’s important, in fairness, to make sure he is heard in this corner.
The Shallow Musings of Jeffrey Lord
Peter Wehner | @Peter_Wehner 06.19.2013 – 3:00 PM
Over the years I’ve been involved in a lot of debates and the subject of a fair amount of attacks. But rarely have the attacks been quite as shallow as the one leveled at me by Jeffrey Lord of the American Spectator.
Let’s start with Lord’s suggestion that he should have titled his reply to my post criticizing Herman Cain and Sarah Palin as the “Wimpy Wussings of Wehner.” Perhaps that’s what qualifies for wit these days at the American Spectator. Mr. Lord’s comment qualifies him as the Oscar Wilde of the second grade.
Wehner slides downhill from there. Again, follow the link and smile.
