That's the same Charles P. Pierce who writes for the Boston Globe Magazine, who penned a paean to Ted Kennedy that was outright embarrassing, ending with the words, "Mary Jo Kopechne would have been 68, and Ted Kennedy would have taken care of her in her old age." And he apparently thought this was some sort of compliment.

Pierce is one of the more unbearably ambitious leftist characters, has got himself a pretty regular slot on NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me," a current events quiz show that spends a lot of time bashing George W. Bush in whatever terms are fashionable. It's on Saturdays at noon here in the Boston area, and I recommend it for insight into what liberals are really thinking, and how they are really behaving.
