Kudos to Brendan for being willing to criticize another liberal blogger.

I suspect that Drum's real complaint was that Rutenberg failed to mention that Malek was on the liberal Bad List. People from some cultures routinely use some action or words to ward off the evil eye after certain statements. Similarly, liberal orthodoxy requires that whenever libs refer to someone they disapprove of, they must include a reminder that the person is considered taboo. Demonization is most effective when it's done consistently.

David: or any particular team's orthodoxy, indeed.
