No one thinks more highly of Michael Kinsley's intellect than I do. Only someone as smart as he is could have made such a lucrative career from out-thinking themselves. In his latest effort he implores Republican readers: "There's just one little request I have. If it's not too much trouble, of course. Call me profoundly misguided if you want. Call me immoral if you must. But could you please stop calling me arrogant and elitist?"
Is this crazy, or what? Objectively speaking, Kinsely is supremely arrogant and elitist. That's his whole schtick! This is like Tom Brady asking sportswriters to stop calling him accurate and calm under pressure.
