They can't even defend themselves

Everyone, of course, is abuzz with the Times' unusually well-timed "expose" about the NSA matter. John Hinderaker, at Power Line, actually wrote to Eric Lichtblau, who authored the article, questioning him about the article's failure to inform people that there was (and is) a good argument to be made that Bush's activities were entirely legal (leaving aside the fact that Clinton, of course, did precisely the same type of stuff). What followed is a fascinating colloquy between Hinderaker and Lichtblau, where you see a powerful, honest mind (that would be Hinderaker) squash a weak, dishonest mind (I'll leave you to guess whose mind that is). The post doesn't yield to summarizing or selective quoting, so I urge you to click on the link and read it at the source. Then, if you're still actually subscribing to the Times, you might want to cancel that subscription.
