Yours Truly in Full Lefty Cry, 1998

Yours Truly in Full Lefty Cry, 1998

A lefty troll posted a photograph of me in the comment thread of my article on Rep. Tom Cotton (R-AR) today, in which I referred, inter alia, to my past as a campus radical. The a snapshot, which was published in the Boston Globe the next morning, was taken at an anti-impeachment rally at Harvard University in 1998 and was referred to recently in an anti-Breitbart screed, which is where I presume the lefty troll found it.

I’m proud of having changed my mind about politics in general. I’m also glad I am still friends with some of those classmates still on the left (including at least one that I recognize in the photo). On the particular issue of impeachment, I think I was somewhat right, though James E. Rogan has convinced me the case against the president was stronger than I understood at the time. I do think the debate contributed to enduring political divisions, weakened moderate Democrats, and hurt conservatives. Gingrich actually agrees, to some extent.
