Ignatieff:Struts and Grovels at the same time

Unable to say "I wrong was about Iraq" Michael Ignatieff produced a convoluted mass of weasel words in the NYT. It has generated much cruel laughter in such as this article by David Rees.

Pompous egoism is forgivable in academics provided they can write clearly about interesting or difficult ideas. But I still wouldn't care to have that species of intellectual in my home, even if I buy their books.
