Ken Starr appointed Baylor prez

If there were still any lingering doubts in your mind about a tight web of right-wingers infiltrating organizations all over the country, this story should kablowie these doubts plumb out of your conscience.

Kenneth Starr has now been named as president of Baylor University, a Baptist institution in Waco, Texas.

Starr, 63, was Solicitor General under the elder Bush and is best known as the "independent" counsel in the sore loser Whitewater probe of Bill Clinton. This led to the impeachment spectacle in Clinton's second term.

Only in conservaworld can anybody keep a straight face while calling Bush's Solicitor General an "independent" investigator.

Starr has continued his right-wing activities in later times. For example, he represented an Alaska school district in the infamous Morse v. Frederick case - in which the school board censored a student's off-campus free speech.

Before being named president of Baylor, Starr had been dean of Pepperdine University's School of Law. This shows how extensive the right-wing revolving door had already become.

Why are prominent right-wingers being rewarded when they should be shunned and quarantined?
