Keep Your Friends Close, and Your Enemies Closer

From Holden:

Slap Fight at the National Review: The Derb reviews Ramesh Ponderousru’s book* Party of Death.

The word “polemical” needs emphasizing. Some people would say that a writer who refers to embryos as “the young,” to Mrs. Schiavo as “disabled,” or to the framers of the Fourteenth Amendment as having carefully pondered its implications for abortion, is just plain dishonest.
