Mark Kleiman, with whom I have jousted for years, has some kind words, sort of:
Maguire is a kind of litmus test. If there's anything plausible, or even nearly plausible, to be said in defense of Republicans, Maguire will say it. But when the situation is completely, utterly, obviously hopeless, he'll admit it. In the stopped-clock crowd he runs with, that makes him a beacon of intellectual honesty. Other Red bloggers, please copy.
Oh, man, this is where we are. And I blame Bush. I will surely mount some scathing yet witty comeback some day (does Jan 20, 2009 work for you?) but it is hard to type through the tears. Of laughter, let me add.
