HOW VAST THE LEFT WING CONSPIRACY?

George Soros, MoveOn.org, Kos, et al — you know them all.  In Washington tomorrow, November 30, I’m taking part in a discussion at the Hudson Institute entitled “How Vast the Left Wing Conspiracy?”  And I’ll be on a panel with, well, the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy: Gara LaMarche of George Soros’ Open Society Institute, and Rob Stein of the Democracy Alliance.  In light of the Democrats’ recent victory, and the fact that the 2008 campaign is already well underway, a lot has happened since my book came out last year, and it should be an interesting discussion.  The event will be from noon to 2:00 pm at the Hudson Institute’s Betsy and Walter Stern Conference Center, 1015 15th Street, NW, Suite 600.  You’re all welcome to attend, and you can register here

Byron York — Byron York is is the author of The Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.
