BREAKING: Mickey Kaus is a Crazy-Ass Idiot

Is it me, or does the leaked Journolist thread Mickey Kaus posted contain a whole lot of disagreement?  This seems very unbecoming of a “secret liberal media email cabal”  dedicated to coordinating talking points.  If anything, the snippet provided by Kaus seems to match Ezra Klein’s initial description of JournoList as “a safe space where policy experts, academics, and journalists could freely talk through issues, bringing up the questions they considered urgent and the information they thought important”.

Furthermore, Kaus seems to have nothing of substance to say about the subject of the thread, Martin Peretz’s racist post about Mexicans.  Kaus seems to think that disagreeing with Peretz here is somehow damnable, but doesn’t quite say as much.  In any case, it’s troubling to see Kaus so readily defend his former boss with this boorish distraction.  It’s almost as if they were looking out for one another against those dastardly whippersnappers.  Of course, such coordination would be entirely kosher, as it was likely not conducted via email.

    Yeah, some of them think Marty Peretz is a crazy-ass racist, and some of them think he’s just a regular old racist. Diversity of opinion!

    How dare Peretz point out obvious problems with Mexican society.

    This is because Kaus has spent the last several years sweatily worrying about the ominously swarthy horde to America’s south, and their treacherously diabolical plan to move into his neighborhood.

    Oh no! A very poor country has many of the problems generally associated with very poor countries! Clearly something must be inherently wrong with the Mexican people.
