Ad Hominems Aren't Us - No, I didn't realize Jonah Goldberg was Lucianne's son, but whatever his hereditary faults, I can't say he's wrong in considering Mickey Signorile "an ass." Talk about a practitioner of the politics of personal destruction. Does anyone else in punditry so relish taking his private, personal sniping at fellow commentators public? I'm with Jonah in refusing to get down into the mud with Signorile, and I also think WBUR's The Connection did the right thing by sticking to guests who could keep their public discourse high-minded and out of the gutter.
