Susan Estrich can't be this stupid
Via Virginia Postrel, I see that the Susan Estrich/Michael Kinsley feud has not abated (click here for my take on the triggering op-ed). James Rainey provides the latest account for the Los Angeles Times. Two interesting facts:
This kind of thinking is on par with Sandy Berger thinking, "Yeah, I bet I can get away with taking some classified documents home without anyone the wiser."
Estrich is probably trying to get work for herself. In her e-mails she complained about a non-feminist woman writing a column for the LA Times.
Estrich herself is a flack for the Democrats. According to Newsweek's election issue, she contacted the Kerry campaign for marching orders prior to a TV appearance.
I have to concede that Estrich can be correct once in a while. On election night she told Fox News that either the exit polls were wrong or Bush would lose. She was right, though not in the way she expected.posted by: LesLein on 03.12.05 at 12:14 AM [permalink]
Having had Estrich as a professor at USC Law, I can confirm that Estrich can be this stupid - and as self absorbed as all this makes her out to be. The above post is right - she's just out to secure more work for herself. My initial reaction when all this started is that something has happened to threaten her cushy teach one course a year and talk five nights a week lifestyle.posted by: scouser on 03.12.05 at 12:14 AM [permalink]
