I agree that pundits should not "diagnose" mental illness. Dr. Krauthammer especially should never do so, because people are apt to take his diagnoses seriously.

However, I have no problem with clearcut jokes, as Somerby's comment was. Note that Somerby's comment doesn't even identify who is supposedly mentally ill. Pinch Sulzberger? The op-ed page editor? The entire NYT management?

Somerby's comment is a humorous way to slam Maureen Dowd, who fully deserves the criticism IMHO.
