Thank you: Right-leaning blogs backing Cronon
This was what I wanted to see: At least two academic bloggers from the right of the political spectrum, including Ann Althouse who also teaches at Wisconsin, have come out basically on the side of the Professor vs. the state Republican party:
The comments on their sites are mixed, but even that is interesting. On the anti-Cronon side, there is a lot of “if he didn’t do anything wrong, he has nothing to fear” kind of thing, which is basically what the Secret Police tell your spouse as they haul you off in the dead of night. The other frequent claim is “The Democrats have probably done the same thing but the MSM never covered it so we don’t know,” which is lamer than lame. The old, “I think I must be the victim here” line.
