We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Clinton will campaign for Lieberman. As you may recall, Gore declined to support him: a bad idea, if he was your vice-presidential candidate.
According to Duke faculty, the lacrosse players are guilty anyway, as one prof is quoted in a piece at HNN:
"Regardless of the 'truth' established in whatever period of time about the incident at the house on N. Buchanan Blvd.," she mused, "the engine of outcry in this moment has been fueled by the difficult and mundane reality that pre-existed this incident." To Lubiano, the "members of the team are almost perfect offenders in the sense that [critical race theorist Kimberle] Crenshaw writes about," since they are "the exemplars of the upper end of the class hierarchy, the politically dominant race and ethnicity, the dominant gender, the dominant sexuality, and the dominant social group on campus."
It's always about "Whose truth?", like Pilate. How about The Truth? Yes - that same old cliched faculty-speak, which makes it clear that white males are always guilty. Further comments at Coyote

Who knew that you could buy an entire edition of a Law Review? Cramer. Shameful, stupid, whorish, embarassing.
The NYT spins it as a good thing that Lamont cannot raise $ in CT against Joe Lieberman. Nice try, NYT. What it obviously means is that he has minimal financial support in the state - but he is doing well in the polls.
We were going to comment on the VDH piece on the weariness with fighting Jihad, but Dinocrat beat us to it.
Toilet-training, Adorno, Barry Goldwater, and John Dean: Classic rambling blogging by Classical Values. I still believe there is a basic confusion existing out there: It's the Left and the Progressives who want to control our lives - not the Conservatives. Or am I missing something?
Former Pres. Clinton is popular everywhere but politically, since leaving office, everyone he has endorsed has lost.
IMHO, if he shares the stage with the former president Mr. Lieberman might join the growing club of those who have accepted Pres. Clintons' endorsement and then gone on to discover they have become political toast.
