Hendo at Short Odds…

Continuing a much loved blogosphere tradition, Saintinastraightjacket and Sedge provide the minimalist deconstruction of Hendo this week… I note that Hendo has a swing at the “Keating haters” and at “conservative inspired alienation”. Maybe he’s following the Governator in just a jump to the left, as the song goes… Readers will judge for themselves whether, as Gerry says, “This is worth more than a footnote in the ongoing history wars”.

ELSEWHERE: Rowen at Sailing Close To The Wind joins in the Hendo fun.

I think the “Hendo this week” link is hinky.

PS. If Peter Costello thinks Howard being the 2nd longest serving PM makes him the *second greatest* PM, does that mean he thinks Hawkey is the 3rd greatest?

If I cared either about Hendo or Huntington I would be stunned.

The history warriors are getting pretty desperate if this is the kind of material they are using. Surely “Mr History” Windschuttle can tell the difference between “The Clash of Civilisations” and an actual academic book with provable stuff in it?

David, it’s weird and ironic. A bit like Francis Fukuyama, Huntington seems to specialise in sweeping generalisations based on little empirical evidence. Whereas our friend Mr History seems to specialise in pedantic examinations of the minutiae of empirical evidence (or its absence). Hendo, on the other hand , specialises in sweeping generalisations etc etc.

Hendo goes for the minutiae about nothing option. Certainly in this one.

you leftwing types are all the same.

This is a good piece by Gerry. He has been consistent on this since the stupid article and then book came out.

He poopooed liberals who without research thought it was correct as well.

SMH’s best columnist!!
