Magazine editor provokes ire of neoconservatives It seems Lewis Lapham, the longtime editor of Harper’s Magazine, has made a list of those considered an “internal threat” to America compiled by Americans for Victory Over Terrorism. This is interesting:
“Lapham was placed on the same list as Jimmy Carter, Rep. Maxine Waters, novelist John Edgar Wideman and others whom the group — headed by former Secretary of Education William Bennett — chastise for not supporting President Bush’s war on terrorism. Americans for Victory Over Terrorism says Lapham and the others have a ‘blame America first’ agenda.”
Jimmy Carter? Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t he a former PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!!!??? Mr. Bennett needs to get a grip.
UPDATE: Michael Kinsley has a few thoughts about William Bennett.
