Not a fair fight. It’s interesting that Sullivan would characterize Cavanaugh as some kind of water-carrier for the starboard side of the political divide, when as Cavanaugh points out . . .
I voted for Obama in 2008, and documented that vote more than once. So in saying my description of the economy’s performance over the past four years is a “knee-jerk” response of the “right,” Sullivan is, as always, wrong.
Indeed, but given that Sullivan wrote what he wrote before thinking and researching, his post attacking Cavanaugh is also entirely emblematic of Sullivan’s blogging style.
More on this general issue here. Cavanaugh also alludes to the Pethokoukis findings, of course.
