Update on Opinion Commentary

Hugh Hewitt reports that the author of this morning's snotty anonymous commentary piece The Jordan Kerfuffle was Brett Stephens.

What is with this man who won't even use his own name to attempt to defend himself (by lashing out at bloggers)? At least James Taranto signed his name to his Best of the Web column, which he started by defending Stephens.

Still Taranto does conclude with a good point:

In any case, the broader theme is clear: Those on the right are helping improve institutions like the media and academia by casting light on their most irresponsibly leftist elements, while those on the left are trying to excommunicate responsible center-left figures like Tim Roemer and Larry Summers. Or to put it another way, the right is increasingly influencing the mainstream, while the left is increasingly alienated from it.

Couldn't have said it better myself.
