Ha Ha Ha

I think it's official, Susan Estrich ill-advised attack on Michael Kinsley has made her a laughing stock. The Washington Post's Anne Applebaum is forced to spend a column addressing the issue:
In the paragraph I have remaining (this, girls, is truly the hardest thing about newspaper columns: making the idea fit the space) I'm not going to discuss the thorny question of whether some affirmative action policies do some good, of whether newspapers matter anymore anyway, or even return to the subject of Sinn Fein. Those are complex, gender-neutral issues, and I've now used up my allotted weekly slot on a "women's issue" instead. Happy, Susan Estrich?
