The Corner

Arianna Ducks

Through Mickey Kaus , I saw this bit where Arianna

Huffington demands that there be a “statute of limitations” on the question

of how she went right to left. (Or really, from the Arianna right to the

Arianna left. I’m happy to say that I never bought her when she was a

conservative.) The demand would be easier to take seriously if Huffington

had ever answered the question in the first place. Huffington writes, “I

mean, when I was a Republican, Saddam Hussein was our ally, George Bush

owned a mediocre baseball team, Enron was a respected energy company and

Michael Jackson was still black.” Actually, as of 1997, at least half of

those things weren’t true.
