The Corner

George Allen

Here’s a preview of the attacks that could be expected. I disagree with some of the Allen actions Nyhan mentions, such as the Confederate stuff and the Lott defense. I think he was right about other things, such as the 1991 Civil Rights Act. And none of this, including the stuff with which I disagree, strikes me as terrible or disqualifying.
