    Althouse is a disgrace, including in this Bloggingshead iteration.

    Every time, in every context, it’s same with her on gays: “Gee, I personally think blacks should be allowed to sit in the front of the bus, but I don’t think it’s that big a deal one way or the other so long as they can get on the bus, and I can’t really understand why they are so uppity about it.”

    Not sophisticated reasoning, and not helpful at all.
