        Some of us have a crush on Rachel Maddow. Her uncle, though, well, he would be pretty manly.

            Kagan's full thesis, for any masochists out there:
            http://www.redstate.com/erick/files/...aganthesis.pdf

            Many passages are "troubling", I'm sure this one may be among them
            “The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism’s decline, still wish to change America….”

              reading only the conclusion since this is where the writer is most likely to romanticize... it appears she's rather sympathetic to the movement and the cause and what she says is certainly what I got of my sociology class.

              Successful movements are 1) unified, 2) strident, 3) unrelenting. Labor and socialist (communist) groups thrive on this but are also fearful in this... elements that serve to disrupt these keys to success are feared and so they seek out those that threaten the movement. Also, these movements are based foremost on morality and power. Everybody wants to rule the world or save it and so you get conflict. This is also probably why labor had more success than the socialists as in those cases you had a goal of more stuff for people as opposed to flipping the governing order... in the latter case you then deal with the issue of getting credit and spots in the hierarchy.

              What I take from Kagan in the page or two that i read is that she's sympathetic... for a Democrat that's understandable though its still unacceptable. The socialists are those pure exemplars which they strive to be. This is why Dems always are on a leftward lurch. I'd have to read more to see if she's full in line with those whom she writes about... and I have no desire for that.

                    The main flaw of the thesis appears to be the author's neglect of footnotes.

                    Clearly, each mention of socialism should have been asterisked, with the footnote "1, 2, 3, 4, which worldview do we abhor?"

                      I'll trade snark for snark, but on the off chance that an actual discussion is to be had . . . can someone explain in a coherent sentence what about that thesis disqualifies the author from public service?

                      Or

                              Yup, cease and desist letter sent today apparently. Still, it's out, and I'm sure it's the hands of an untold number of people by now though.

                                I love how that clown is now portraying himself as the victim, suggesting that Princeton (and Kagan) have something to hide.

                                He. Broke. The. Law. It doesn't take world-class jurisprudence to see it. Violating copyright law isn't up there with murder, but that's beside the point. Arguing that laws can be ignored when inconvenient doesn't strike me as a very Red State position.

                                But who cares. This isn't about Kagan. It's about the debate about Kagan. And mission accomplished. The guy's added to that, justifying his website's existence in the process.
