Concerning Alex Cockburn, while I have long enjoyed reading his commentary I do think that he has a certain nihilist streak in him probably inherited from his father Claud.

BTW I suspect that few of Alex's US readers are aware that his father was a cousin of the right-wing, Catholic novelist Evelyn Waugh. Apparently despite their great differences in their political and religious views, Claud and Evelyn got along rather well, sharing passions for drinking and gambling.
