Bitch Slapping the Times

On occasion, an Op/Ed piece does such a spectacular job of obliterating another that "Bitch Slapping" is the only term to describe the point-by-point refutation. Victor Davis Hanson, writing in City Journal:

On July 8, the New York Times ran an historic editorial entitled “The Road Home,” demanding an immediate American withdrawal from Iraq. It is rare that an editorial gets almost everything wrong, but “The Road Home” pulls it off. Consider, point by point, its confused—and immoral—defeatism.
