As Frank Turk would have it: “Did you notice that Hays hedged his bets? Seems like he's missing the point.”
Perhaps he’d like to enlighten me as to what point I’m missing. To begin with, I withheld comment until I had the full text of Robertson’s remarks. That, I regard, as a preliminary to responsible criticism--a quaint notion, I know.
I then proceeded to sort through his arguments, one-by-one, sifting the good from the bad—rather than, as so many others have done, simply emoting in a fit of inchoate pique.
What he is pleased to call “hedging my bets,” I am pleased to call rational analysis—as in actually engaging the arguments put forward by the individual in question.
