Fisking revisionism

Victor David Hanson replies to backs a truck over Pat Buchanan.

Patrick J. Buchanan got upset that I wrote a column about the World War II revisionists, especially his book, and that of Nicholson Baker’s on the allied “crimes” of bombing German cities. I produce his column by paragraph and then comment in brackets.

I've never liked PB very much, well, at all, really. However, he used to be smarter than this.

Replying to someone as astute as VDH in such a careless and snide way is the intellectual equivalent of smearing catfood all over one's body, shouting "Hey y'all, watch this," and then hopping over the fence around the tiger cage at the zoo. Somehow, a painless outcome of either action is just unimaginable.
