My first, last, and only comment on the firings at RedState.

As most of you know, I voluntarily quit politics in 2016, which meant that I also stopped writing for RedState at that time. Today, that site let a lot of its writers go. Without getting into either the politics of the situation, or Salem’s justification for doing so, I will say this: while I think that this was an error, I am in no way surprised.  I knew eighteen months ago that this day would come, and I was absolutely disinterested in trusting Salem Communications to do the right thing when the day finally came.  There is already enough shabby behavior in the world that we don’t have to have companies coming up with new and exciting ways to not live up to our already low expectations: yet here we are.

And that is all that I have to say about that.
