Scott Beauchamp engaged or married to a New Republic writer whom he’s known since at least 2004? Well, according to his blog from his pre-Iraq Army days in Germany — and I’ve just sampled its first archived entries, from January 2006 — Pvt. Beauchamp had lots of girls on his mind, all of them apparently German. Perhaps some of it was an exercise in creative writing. But clearly not the rest. Scroll through his entries for yourself. They include such details as “I’m planning on asking Kristen out on a date again. A German girlfriend so soon? Mayhaps,” and a photo of an apparently local girl and the caption, “… Having a local girl that embodies racial perfection: priceless.” She’s clearly not the young woman he is now said to be connected to. How do we know? Because we met her when she covered Bob Tyrrell’s book party earlier this year. The plot thickens.
