Can There Be A Decent Decent Left?
We had a bit of a dustup in comments a while ago about American academic Michael Bérubé, whether he was Decent or not and whether Crooked Timber was going right down the tubes now that he's joined it. Well, here, he enters the lists, defending himself against charges of out-and-out Decency, while staking out a position clearly critical of the majority of the Indecent Left. Can there be a pro-intervention Left which isn't Decent? See what you think.
