Striking a civil tone, Armondo, Daily Kos's master of scatological snark, appears today defending himself on Althouse's erudite continuing discussion of Judge Alito's opinion on the Family Medical Leave Act in the Chittister case. Althouse had noted how Armondo had carved up a Kos Commenter and observed that he might not have had his legal analysis straight.
At about Noon, Armondo appeared in person, eschewing his usual invective, and defended his points on the merits. This appearance stimulated more discussion and readership for Althouse.
