Anatomy of a smear.
It’s this year’s “Dick Cheney’s Gay Daughter”. UPDATE: “Fair Game,” then and now.
My column this week: There’s no polite way or time to say it: American college and universities have become coddle industries.

Nancy Pelosi’s daughter, Alexandra, is getting a lot of attention for her documentary about evangelical Christians, which airs tonight in less than an hour on HBO.
