Bret Stephens alienated many conservative bloggers during the Eason Jordan affair. It wasn’t the position he took, but rather his tone. We were particularly unhappy about the gratuitous shot he took at Michelle Malkin.
However, Stephens is still an excellent columnist, as he demonstrates in this review of clueless Clintonite Nancy Soderberg’s book, The Superpower Myth. I especially like his conclusion:
Let’s not be all negative about this book, for it does provide one useful service: It reminds us of everything that the world was spared when the [Clinton] team wasn’t returned to office–the “world” here meaning every Joe Tutsi for whom the superpower “myth” remains a promise of hope, rescue and freedom, whatever else it might mean to Nancy Soderberg.
