    “Look! We’re controversial! Please please please please please buy our paper!”

  • LaSargenta

    Ah, the appealing-to-popularity fallacy.

    How modern.

  • Bluejay

    In some cases, I wish sheer numbers DID determine reality. By sheer number of votes, Donald Trump should not be president.

    Yikes. Bill Kristol, Ross Douthat, and now Stephens. I’m picturing the Times editorial team looking at each other and saying, “Me neither. Do you know any conservatives?”

  • Jurgan

    On the other hand, even more millions of people disagree with this guy.

  • LaSargenta

    Yeah, well, that’s a different appeal to the majority issue.

  • Dent

    Could… could they not get anyone else?
