Is it just me, or do none of these students at Harvard's Kennedy School, "blogging" about the YouTube/CNN debate for GOP candidates, sound like they are actually Republicans? Are there any Republican students at the Kennedy school? (Secret Republicans don't count.) How is it remotely relevant to anything what (presumably) Democrat students, at one of the most liberal academic enclaves in the country, think of the performance of the various Republican candidates? Some of the comments are beyond stupid -- (I paraphrase) "Huckabee stresses he can beat Hillary; but that offends our sense of democracy. She hasn't been nominated yet." "Republicans are against gays in the military but Alexander the Great had a lot of gays in his army." (I'm surprised the movie 300 was not invoked. None of those warriors were overtly gay, but you're going to have a hard time finding it in stock in the Castro Blockbuster, I can tell you.) Still, it is amusing to see the NY Times pretending it is new media.
