So, lefty intellectual Tony Judt recently collaborated with his son Daniel on a NY Times op-ed piece
(on Father's Day... get it?) about, well, I don't know, a bunch of shit: politics, generation gaps, the environment, etc. This dialogue proved way too much for Avowed Enemy of Judt, Michael Wolff, so Wolff, in his characteristically unpleasant way
, accused Judt pere of fabricating the whole thing, implying that Judt fils was merely a moronic pawn in his dad's twisted game. Well, lil Danny Judt don't play that. Here's his fantastic response
to Idiot-Boy Mike Wolff:
Drawing attention away from [concerns about political action on global warming] with petty, unfounded assertions is, with all due respect, childish and destructive. But then again, it's much harder to come up with a sound critique when you're working with real facts and ideas. It seems clear who's making things up here.
I believe in the parlance of the moment, "oh snap" would be an appropriate thing to say here.
