Ain’t that America?

This just in: Jeffrey Goldberg, editor of The Atlantic, just fired Kevin Williamson, the Javert wanna-be of America’s Pro-Life movement.

In other words, a guy who believes women should be hanged for having abortions just got fired by a guy who made his name volunteering as a prison guard in the prison camps of a foreign army.

The controversy raging in American intellectual circles: should Jeffrey Goldberg have fired Kevin Williamson?

The controversy not raging in American intellectual circles: should The Atlantic be edited by Jeffrey Goldberg?

But don’t worry: Goldberg promises to do a better job vetting the people who write for him. Because The Atlantic has a reputation to uphold.

What a country.
