A Response (A Real One) from Kathryn Lopez of NRO's Corner
In response to my e-mail copied in this post below, I received today this cordial e-mail from Kathryn Lopez of NRO's Corner. Notice the stark difference in tone from the flippant reponse I got from Laura Ingraham's staff:
thanks for your e-mail.
we did say this in a widely read and cited editorial and it still stands: "And conservatives and the White House will have to restore their working relationship. Some hard and ill-considered words have been said on both sides, but it is time for all involved to follow their interests, instead of their resentments."
i won't vouch for EVERYTHING that was said on the right. and sure, a post or two on the corner may have been too snarky. comes with the territory a bit--when you're providing the quick, constant commentary the blogosphere requires. but overall, i think nro's tone was fine. our beef was never with miers as a person as so many suggest to me, it was that the president made a bad pick--too much of a gamble.
despite my casual snarky remarks now and again--see hewitt and nytimes this morning in corner--i do hope we can all move beyond this quickly and--i cringe as i sounds like bill clinton--get back to work.
thanks again. have a good weekend.
Well, okay. How can one not appreciate the good will in such a note? We need more of this from others. It will be interesting to see if David Frum comes through with a response.
And I'm still hoping for Christopher Cox.
