Is it just me, or does anybody else here find Stefan’s obsession with HA a little bit creepy? Writing on David Irons’ official website (soundpolitics.org), Stefan broods about the Seattle P-I finally pinning down Irons’ on I-912, an issue of great public import:
The P-I is merely in a struggle to follow in the horseproduct-caked shoes of Seattle’s favorite left-wing fiction blog, hitting hard on a fabricated non-issue that is of interest only to the lunatic fringe.
At first I found his political man-crush oddly flattering (if unrequited)… a backhanded tip-of-the-hat to my ongoing success at helping to shape the public debate. But his OCD-like focus on all things HA is beginning to weird me out. Next thing you know, he’ll be hiring somebody to follow me.
Ah well. I guess I’ll just continue to take the high road, by focusing on hard hitting reporting and analysis, while leaving the petty sniping and personal attacks to others.
