Whoze you calling illiterate?

Martin Peretz, in high dudgeon:

Forgive me. But I never read Daily Kos until today. Well, now that I've read it, the first thought that came to me is how illiterate Kos is, just plain illiterate.

Ouch, babe. And to drive home his point, Mr. Peretz pens a highly literate and coherent fourth sentence:

There has been other not-with-a-pick-axe-but-with-a-bludgeon left-wing journalism in the English speaking world, the American PM, for example, or the British Tribune.

"There has been other..."

"There has been other...?"

Mmmm. It's almost Faulknerian in its cadence.
