Scaife for Clinton?

Posted By on Mon, Mar 31, 2008 at 11:05 AM

From the New York Times: Richard Mellon Scaife, the bankroller of the American Spectator magazine's Arkansas Project in the 1990s, has penned an editorial in the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review praising Hillary Clinton. (Scaife owns the daily, Pittsburgh's second-largest.) Scaife stopped short of saying the paper would actually endorse Clinton over Barack Obama in Pennsylvania's April 22 primary. But it is a strange piece, considering the amount of money Scaife once paid to derail the Clintons.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
