After posting guest-pundit Drew Westen's commentary this morning, we noticed it had no real point. We're pretty sure it had one when we first decided to publish it--after all, why would we want to publish a pointless, four-page opinion piece?--but alas, we cannot recall what that point might have been (the existing version offers no clues) and now, wholly bereft of any incisiveness as this pointless piece is, we cannot imagine whatever else would have possessed us to proceed with putting nearly 2,300 words of such rambling pedestrianism into print.
Thus we've concluded there must have been a point. Somehow, it got lost; perhaps in the editing process, perhaps in the intangible mechanics of cyberpublishing, or maybe that damn Krauthammer walked off with it. Frankly, we just don't know, we simply have no idea where the point went. Should you find it, however, please return it.
