They’re Still At It

Read this editorial to remind yourself what Republicans are really like. This is from Richard Mellon Scaife’s newspaper, just last week. Scaife is the guy who funds many of the Republican “think tanks” and “policy committees” and various activities of the Republicans – particularly the Federalist Society where so many Bush Administration figures and judicial appointments came from. Scaife funded much of the anti-Clinton investigations as well as those nasty magazines that were full of smears (read the editorial and remember). Ted Olson, now Solicitor General, helped run the anti-Clinton activities for Scaife. Ken Starr was associated with several Scaife organizations, and after the impeachment even tried to leave his position as Special Prosecutor to take a Scaife-funded professorship. Read this editorial and ponder that THIS is the crowd that is now running the country.
