Damn, Adam, that’s cold

Adam Radwanski writes the cruellest paragraph I’ve read about Michael Ignatieff from a writer who could, reasonably, be expected to like the guy:

Dion’s problem was that he had a vision; he just couldn’t find the right words to sell it. Ignatieff has managed to flip things around; time after time, he articulately ties himself into knots trying to get around the fact that he has very little to say.

It is cruel, of course, in a way that inaccurate criticism could never be.
