On maintaining the appearance of balance
I'm surprised that both Tyler Cowen and Julian Sanchez wrote lengthy blog posts about the severity of Dave Weigel's problems with his Journolist emails, but didn't mention the coincidence that this is in the wake of the controversy over apparent maneuvering to try to protect Rep. Etheridge. (A "any video of a member [of Congress] acting strangely, no matter how grainy" forsooth!) When fire from the right catches you just as you're heeled over that far to the left, it tends to strike below the waterline.
