The Corner

Preferring Connerly

My new podcast interview with Ward Connerly is here. We recorded it last Thursday, just hours before Barack Obama’s convention speech — you know the one, in which Obama accepted the Democratic nomination with “great humilty” at a huge football stadium full of adoring fans – and some of the conversation reflects that. Anyway, it’s a good interview, with material about Connerly’s boyhood and what inspired him to spend so much of his adulthood fighting racial preferences. Connerly’s new book is called Lessons from My Uncle James.
