"I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning." -- James Joyce
I think Sullivan is basically right, but (a) he should have provided links so we can make sure he's being accurate in his summaries and (b) the guy who proposed sending all the guys back to their country and then hitting them with a missile (I think it was Mark Steyn) was obviously kidding. I'm not saying Steyn would actually oppose that in reality, but in his article he was obviously kidding.So I wonder if NRO actually supported smearing fake menstrual blood on people's faces etc. as Sullivan claims.
