*(&%*(^ on a pogo stick

I don't know what to say about the recent Patterico/Jeff Goldstein/RS McCain dustup. I cannot believe that this little tempest has been allowed to boil over to the point that we might be witnessing the Frey-Goldstein Rumble II beginnings. Suffice it to say that I'm in agreement with Big Lizards and Little Miss Attila's assessment, but also understand-to a point-where Mr. Frey is coming from. But I'm going to side with Stacy in that you cannot allow someone else to define the rules for engagement. To do so grants authenticity to their argument, at least to some degree. Once done, you're merely arguing about whether you're a cheap whore or an expensive one, not whether you are one at all.

And no, I don't see fit to link to the people mentioned above. I dig them all, but can't really bring myself to add to the feeding frenzy.
