College Republican campus recruiting
From the sidewalks on campus this week:
“Phil Kent on The dark side of liberalism: unchaining the truth”
“How to become a millionaire: saving and investing”
College Republicans aren’t the biggest group on campus but they are up there. (The Baptist Student Union is the largest, then there’s also the Diverse Body of Christ.) The Architect (a past chairman, defeating Terry Dolan) would be proud. I walk across this every day at work. So much for the liberal academy.
Cox not Washington Post’s new gossip columnist
I don’t listen to Imus, so I missed it.
Washington’s cell phones and chat lines were on fire Wednesday with the news from Don Imus’s show that Ana Marie Cox, aka Wonkette, had been named the Washington Post’s new gossip columnist.
Gossip aficionados were not surprised. As soon as Reliable Source author Rich Leiby quit last month, Cox was mentioned as a possible successor. Her Wonkette blog is a guilty pleasure most days, often newsy and usually frothy and funny.
But news of Cox’s hire turned out to be idle gossip-and dead wrong, the product of muddy conversation on a radio show taken as fact.
