Political Blogging Koan

If a wingut* manages to be funny and insightful - at the same time! - does he cease to be a wingnut?

* The question might be totally moot, as "wingnut" may not be a fair characterization of William Lind. Mr. Lind is a regular contributor to, but then again, so is Pat Buchanan. Lots of Mr. Lind's contributions to are also published at News At Defense and the National Interest (a site I totally recommend, by the way), but the ones that appear on antiwar only represent a subset of those at DNI. Mr. Lind is also a member of the Free Congress Foundation (on that site today one of his columns appears side by side with one by Paul Weyrich). I'm not suggesting I judge a man by the company he keeps, but Mr. Lind'status as a bona-fide Culture Warrior (on who should be allowed to immigrate to the United States: only white Christians need apply) certainly put him closer to the wingnut column. This might just be another instance of apparent political reconfiguration brought about by the rule of the Bungler In Chief. I look forward to the day when he is finally out of office and we can all get back to knowing which side we're supposed to be on.
