1. The CIC mentioned in the article has been a significant force in politics for some time.

There was a scandal a few years ago involving the rector of the CIC, Fr. C. John McCloskey, who was removed from his position by Opus Dei. He was responsible for the very public conversion of a lot of neocon and far-right figures: Robert Novak, Laura Ingraham, Newt Gingrich, Robert Bork, and others I can't recall.

McCloskey was also one of the "stars" (gag) on the execrable EWTN Catholic network. He had a regular show focused on Catholic writers. Nearly all of them were the typical sort of authors supported by "think" tank bulk buyers with which DUers are familiar.

By the way, the CIC is on K Street, a very expensive place to be, and an area better known for white-shoe law firms and lobbying groups.
