Some times everything just comes together! In case you've been too busy (you know, doing your work, to follow the Alito Supreme Court hearings), Senator Kennedy has been attacking Alito because he was apparently (maybe) a member of a conservative organization called the Concerned Alumni of Princeton that argued that "the Ivy League university had lowered its admission standards to accept women and minorities." In response, conservative operatives are apparently pushing (via Drudge) a story that will be in the Washington Times tomorrow about Senator Kennedy's membership in one all-male institution while he was at Harvard. Wait for it, the Owl Club!

Better yet, Drudge (and apparently Senator Kennedy's spokeswoman), don't even have their facts straight: "The Owl refused to admit women until it was forced to do so during the 1980s, according to records kept by the HARVARD CRIMSON, the student newspaper. [...] Anyway, she (Kennedy's spokeswoman] said, even though women were admitted to the university during Mr. Kennedy's tenure, they weren't fully integrated to the campus until much later."

They're fully integrated now?

what does this say about the supposed benefits, political and economic, that final clubs offer their members? if the owl club is a political liability (kennedy resigned from the owl today, I think) then how are they going to keep up their membership?
