James Taranto has found a way—he thinks—to make unethical GOP campaign tricks seem less objectionable. Compare them to the practices of New York Times columnists.
A pure slime-job, this…well beneath Taranto’s standards, though he does dip low now and then, and as reprehensible an example of attack by unfair innuendo as you are likely to find, from McCarthy to Olbermann to Beck.
Ah, James, I have misjudged you, I fear.

“The thing we adore about these dog-whistle kerfuffles is that the people who react to the whistle always assume it’s intended for somebody else. The whole point of the metaphor is that if you can hear the whistle, you’re the dog.”
“I don’t think I’ve ever heard “I don’t want to be confused by facts” as directly as this before in my life.”
