From Bruce Bartlett, lamenting the state of the modern conservative press since Irving Kristol shut down The Public Interest in 2005:

Commentary is now just a highbrow version of National Review, which is just a glossy version of Human Events, which has become a slightly less hysterical version of nutty websites like WorldNetDaily.

Nicely put.  Bruce is obviously adapting quickly to the polemical rigors of the blogosphere.
