Michael Ignatieff Through the Looking Glass

by matttbastard

The National Post editorial brain trust goes above and beyond its pay grade with a new feature today, as it attempts to collectively evaluate the academic writings of new Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff, starting with Iggy’s 2004 book The Lesser Evil: Political Ethics in an Age of Terror.

One can’t help but get the sense that there was a lot of self-satisfied preening going on for daring to break out an hoary term like ‘oeuvre’ — “Oooh we’re taking a big risk by letting our Eastern elitist flags fly, kids!” Although, with that said, Kelly McParland does take a few steps back from the brink, pointedly noting that he never enjoyed the luxury of Haaahvaaahd book-learnin’.  Still, I wonder what KKKate and Kathy Shaidle will have to say about *gasp* teh Francais appearing in the (web) pages of the Post–and in a non-disparaging fashion?

Quell horreur!
