Weigel has a portfolio of writing that goes back years. I don’t think he was “posing” as anything.

The urge to pigeonhole people seems to be irresistible. Weigel’s bosses had him in one, and were disappointed when they found it didn’t fit.

Lots of former commenters here were disappointed when Charles didn’t seem to fit the pigeonhole they had put him in.

This kind of disappointment apparently causes spittle-flecked rage, or firings.

So the editors at the Washington Post are incapable of being anything but pigeonhole oriented? They aren’t broad minded? They did accept his resignation - was that because they were incapable of understanding where he was coming from after years of writing in their employment? And if not, then perhaps they should all resign for having then presented such a person to readers as an insider of the Right.
