He's a very prickly, twerpy liberal extremist who was merely born Jewish.
That's about the nicest thing I can say except that he probably has the sturdiest pair of Obama knee pads on the planet.
Anyhoo-I thought Andrew Klaven summed up this Kevin Williamson episode quite nicely.
"He is incisive, wickedly droll and a terrific writer. In fact, given his insistently deadpan sense of humor, I'm pretty sure he doesn't actually believe women who have abortions should be hanged, as he has occasionally said. But, of course, that's an old trick of the left, isn't it? Pretending to be outraged by conservative jokes so we learn to be careful what we say."
"Anyway, that was the crappy little ploy Atlantic editor Jeffrey Goldberg used when, after hiring Kevin to bring some diversity of opinion to his magazine, he fired him two weeks later for bringing some diversity of opinion to his magazine."
NRO is super awesomely craptacular anyway, so good writers (and especially the BEST WRITER IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE TODAY) must leave it.
Williamson (and I'm not really a huge fan) will be better off away from NRO and also from the effete, liberal Jewish soy boys at The Atlantic. Yuck.
