    "diary does not describe the Republican plan" to the extent it means that the diary does not describe the Republican plan. As I have said repeatedly, the diary is an assessment of that plan, not a description.

    My initial response/question was whether you meant to merely point out what the diary does not do -- an odd thing to point out just for the sake of pointing it out -- or to challenge the assessment by implying that it was invalid because (a.) it did not fully describe the plan before offering an assessment thereof, or (b.) the omitted details would, if provided, invalidate the assessment.

    All you really needed to say was that you meant to do the former, not the latter. If that's in fact what you intended. The former just struck me as an odd complaint in the absence of any requirement to the contrary, or any substantive rebuttal of the assessment.

    I have no problem whatsoever with your linking to the actual proposal or anyone else's assessment thereof, and I neither said nor implied that I did. It's the reader's job to determine the validity of my assessment, or anyone else's, including that of the proposal's authors.
