Harnden's assumptions about the reader's knowledge of Beltway games doesn't bother me; it's better than british writing on US politics that treats the reader like an idiot and explains who everyone is for 5 paragraphs. What bothers me about Harnden is the level of vitriol- it undermines all his writing. And I say that as someone who's inclined to agree with him on a lot of things. But if a writer loses all sense of detachment it's a bit hard to take seriously their analysis (in contrast to say, Peggy Noonan- she makes an effort to write in a detached manner. Not to mention is a far better writer)
