Dear Prudence

Verbatim Ross Douthat:

At times, Ted Kennedy's fervor on abortion felt like an extended apology to his party's feminists for the way the men of his dynasty behaved in private.
Which, besides being utter horseshit as an argument about abortion rights or feminism or just about anything else it purports to be, would make of the chaste, abortion- choice-loathing, twenty-something Douthat something of a chastening, sex-loathing, ginormous PRIG.

I'd say he's hoist himself on his own petard but he'd probably get off on that.
