"The New McCarthyism" - excellent retort to the Khalidi BS - Harpers Mag
The New McCarthyism

By Scott Horton
Harpers Magazine

The last weeks of every presidential campaign I can remember bring out the crazies. Candidates are reviled as racists, Nazis, Communists, and the like. But this year the process has gotten nuttier and more malicious than usual. Perhaps it is a sign of desperation, given that polling does not suggest a close campaign, and a party now long entrenched appears to be poised for a swift kick in the behindfor the second time running.

2. "I have a suggestion for Andy McCarthy and his Hyde Park project"...
If he really digs down deep enough, he will come up with a Hyde Park figure who stood in constant close contact with Barack Obama and who, unlike Ayers and Khalidi, really did influence Obamas thinking about law, government, and policy. He is to my way of thinking a genuine radical. His name is Richard Posner, and he appears to be the most frequently and positively cited judge and legal academic in National Review.
