More from Professor Murphy


I’ve mentioned here before that Walter Murphy, the McCormick Professor emeritus at Princeton and reliably liberal himself, has effusively praised his old student Sam Alito. There’s more on that today in The Daily Princetonian, which interviewed Murphy yesterday. Be warned: just as Murphy couldn’t resist salting his earlier praise of Alito with an unnecessary swipe at President Bush (as reported elsewhere), the interview here concludes with a gratuitous (and stupid) insult to Clarence Thomas. Guess old Walter has to keep his street cred with his homies.
