And in These Corners . . . Jack Danforth

Jack Danforth, having written a book, has discovered some problems with the Republican party's embrace of religious lunatics. Those problems were not apparent to him two years ago, when he worked as a Bush Pioneer to raise $100,000 for Bush's reelection. Nor were they apparent when he single-handedly carried Clarence Thomas's Supreme Court nomination through the Senate. Thomas, as we now know, finds no right to privacy in the U.S. Constitution or its amendments. To say that Danforth is of a divided mind understates the case. His behavior has passed the line into the schizophrenic. Clearly, Jack Danforth's left hand has no idea what the right hand is doing.
