    I have often wondered whether it is possible for a commentator to irritate me even more than the apparently supremely-irritating Leon Kass. It seems, at last, that the powers that be have delivered delivered me from my ignorance, of they have sent the writings of one Ross Douthat. Even if I achieved unnatural, long life, and honed my writing skills for ten generations, still then I could not reproduce his perfect, untainted smugness. I wager I could not achieve even one-tenth its great, grand magnificence.

    Ahem, “that the powers that be have delivered me from my ignorance, for they have sent the writings on one Ross Douthat.” A preview button would greatly improve things.

    Douthat needs to rigorously distinguish between meritocracy and democracy to explain how he got into Harvard.
