Instapundit/Saint Andrew Smackdown

Oh, sure, now that I've made it cool to trash St. Andrew of the Sacred "Heart-Ache," everyone's doing it.

However, I do agree with [several NRO writers, like Mark Levin] that Andrew has been consistently, pompously, and annoyingly moralistic and irritatingly unspecific. So if that's the chorus, well yes -- but it's a song that has a lot of notes, most of them struck by Andrew himself. And I'm irritated with him, not for the reason you might think -- because I disagree with Andrew -- but more the contrary, because every time I read one of his preening posts, I find my opposition to torture weakening in response, even though I've been consistently in opposition to torture since 2001 (and before).

St. Andrew is a tough read. His amps definitely go to 11, and they're stuck on 11 90% of the time.

Thanks to JB.
