Plamegate: Autophagy and Solipism

Keeping up with the commentary on the New York Time's beat-down of Judy Miller will tax your vocabulary perspicacity, but it's worth it.

Yesterday we had the excellent New York Sun editorial with its reference to autophagy.

Today we have John Podhoretz's insightful opinion piece with a reference to solipsism:

...O[f] course, none of this Miller character assassination has anything to do with the Valerie Plame story. Rather, it has to do with the war in Iraq, weapons of mass destruction — and the peculiar solipsism of both the staff of The New York Times and the paper's liberal readership...

Both are worth reading in their entirety.

Hat Tip: Instapundit

BTW...irony intended with the use of perspicacity. Why should all the big boys have all the fun with esoteric words? ;)
