Michael Young Versus His Readers

Yet another long, pretentious pro-war, pro-Bush piece in Reason by Michael Young, this time praising the $60 billion arms deal recently announced by the Bush administration, has his readers in an uproar: this comment thread is hilarious. Libertarians are, naturally, antiwar, the Reason staff is officially agnostic on the issue, but in reality its foreign policy pieces are almost uniformly neoconnish to the max. One factor left out of this equation, however, is Reason‘s readers, who, it looks like, have had enough of Senor Young’s gunslinging on behalf of the Bushies.
