ARTHUR SILBER HAS NAILED MIKE KINSLEY in a hypocrisy slapdown.

Actually, it’s more than that: the old Kinsley column that Silber has dredged up is mindbogglingly embarrassing on its own — even before you notice the double standard.

UPDATE: Some people say that Silber is misreading Kinsley’s column, and missing his sarcasm. I followed the link from Silber’s post initially and it didn’t seem that way, but I went back and read it again, and I think they’re probably right. This quote is the tipoff, to me: “Is rape a worse crime than using drugs? Well, many might think so, but you wouldn’t know it from the way most politicians talk about drugs.”

It’s not entirely clear, though I should have assumed that any time Dan Quayle is quoted, Kinsley is being sarcastic. My fault.
