  1. Kudos to Maureen Dowd for giving him her well respected platform for a day – the Sunday NY Times op-ed column. Hysterical.

  2. Good article. Always nice to see a rational examination of a possibly-not-far-fetched idea.

    On the previous post (the NYT op-ed) Co lbert mentiones Frank Rich, whose column usually appears right next to Dowd’s. I liked this article of his on poor Clarence Thomas (Oct 7, 2007 “Nobody Knows the lynchings He’s Seen”)
    He articulated my initial reaction to his Thomas’ book/press.

    Yeah — Thomas came out with a very strange book timed with the beginning of the new Supreme Court term, a book which most agree bizarrely oozes of his anger at liberals and the “lynching” he received over the Anita Hill sexual harassment charges. Did he really mean to remind everyone about Anita Hill when the evidence was clearly against him, and to show was an angry man he is, or was this just the best way to sell some books? Maybe justices aren’t paid enough.

  4. Chris,

    This is incredible. I am so excited about Obama winning. You must be ecstatic. The end to the Bush era is finally near.

    John Hill
