If you happen to be one of about 300 living persons with a column at a conservative magazine or a sinecure from one of the big D.C. or New York-based right-wing think tanks or maybe a chaired professorship at one of a handful of small liberal arts colleges, you are probably already up to speed with what National Review's David French wrote in response to an article by the opinion editor of the The New York Post, Sohrab Ahmari, that appeared on the website of another magazine. I probably didn't see your tweets, but I'm sure you thought they were funny or insightful or whatever they were supposed to be at the time.
