UPDATE: END OF FRENZY
Hugh Hewitt, responding in WizBang’s comments, says I am not actually a frenzied leftist:
I plead guilty to bad paragraphing, but the “frenzied left” refers to Joshua Micah Marshall, not the estimable Mr. Joyner.
I also want to point out my poor paragraphing below may have led some folks to conclude that I was lumping OutsidetheBeltway, Marstonalia, and LegalTheoryBlog among the frenzied leftists like Joshua who are pulling out all stops to defend the new Catholic test. I had intended to underscore how these blogs treated the controversy with responsibility, not rhetoric. Paragraphing is a perilous business. My apologies to these three fine sites. (8-6, 5:45)
Heh. Apology accepted.
