    With all due respect, the Wonkette piece looks to me like a bad column about a bad book.

    Bill: Wonkette is an acquired taste at best, but certainly it shows that Denby didn’t do his homework.

  3. Bill H.

    Dan, certainly true, and there’s a bit of condescension in Denby that’s a put-off too.

    Snark is protected by the First Amendment; you might as well complain about the wind.Wonkette correctly dates its Teddy article; end of story on that aspect.Denby’s book correctly includes Wonkette’s clumsy misspelling of the cliche Taxachusetts.Other than fact-checking, this doesn’t make me any more interested in reading either site.
