James Wolcott: Jerk. Jackass. Arrogant Asshat.

The Weekly Standard's Editor, Michael Goldfarb, smacks down Vanity Fair's blowhard Contributing asshat...err Editor, James Wolcott.

Of Jerks and Caricatures

Andrew Breitbart writes a fantastic column today owning up to a misguided but well meaning attempt to confront some anti-war protesters.

The column is very funny, and Breitbart uses his mistake to do some good -- directing people to the group's website at invisiblechildren.com

Meanwhile, Vanity Fair's James Wolcott, confronted by a contrite and self-deprecating conservative, strings together a series of self-righteous and ad hominem attacks culminating in an imaginary scene that has Breitbart getting into a "contretemps" with participants in an AIDS walk. And this in the course of asserting a disconnect between the conservative caricature of liberals and reality.
James Wolcott: Jerk? Jackass? Arrogant Asshat?

Ugly Liberal American is more like it. But why quibble over terminology?
