This NRO guy and Cornerite offers the same for Herman Cain:
I got a lot of grief for writing that, based on my interaction with Mr. Cain, I would have hesitated to hire him to run a pizza company. I am feeling more comfortable in that judgment.
- Kevin Williamson
I am pretty sure that this Williamson character is kept around at the NRO kind of as a novelty. He's a young fella' who seems genuinely concerned about his fellow wingers inability to tell fact from fiction. This is of course one of the main missions for the NRO - to keep its readers in the dark.
Anyway they are cute when they are young. The world is open to all sorts of possibilities.
