DeLong and Yglesias diverge in response to Franke-Ruta's hissy fit

After Garance Franke-Ruta of The American Prospect denounced liberal bloggers Brad DeLong and Matt Yglesias for pointing out that Bill Bennett actually hadn't called for genocide and racism, economist DeLong offers a "partial recantation." In contrast to Franke-Ruta's frank Damn-the-Truth stance, DeLong has settled upon Darn-the-Truth.

In contrast, Yglesias shows backbone in his posting "I Recant Nothing." In the past, I've referred to him as "child prodigy blogger Matthew Yglesias," but he's starting to grow up fast.
