Juan Cole: Obfuscating Intellectual

Justin Katz, in a discussion relating to Juan Cole's latest hissy fit in which he attacked Jonah Goldberg (who responded), comments
The problem that so many intellectuals have — across the disciplines — is that they haven't been visiting and learning languages and writing books to understand their subjects, but to cram them into a Leftist worldview.
Indeed. (And their example should serve as an object lesson for those of us "scholars" on the right).
