Give 'Em Zell Lite
Slate has decided to approximate the Faux News model of fairness 'n' balance. To balance Midget Mickey Kaus, standard bearer for the Republican wing of the Republican party, they've hired Bruce Reed from the Democratic wing of the Republican party.
Reed is the President of the Democratic Leadership Council, and it seems his biggest contribution as domestic policy adviser to the Clinton Administration was -- school uniforms. He looooves John McCain. He urges Dems to give Alberto Gitmo a free pass ("Some Democrats won't be able to help themselves from going after the Gonzales torture memos") and buys into the fraudlent campaign to place distance between Gonzales and his bedfellows on the far right.
What, they couldn't afford Joe Lieberman?
