05/18/2003 Entry: "Bill Bennett redux"

"'If Tupac were alive, he'd be laughing,' said Jimmy Iovine, chairman of Interscope, when I called him last week. It's his label that was in Mr. Bennett's crosshairs in the 1990's. Dr. Dre, Mr. Iovine says, "was crying" with laughter after being told of Mr. Bennett's gambling embarrassment. Mr. Iovine, too, can laugh - all the way to the bank. When Mr. Bennett's campaign persuaded Time Warner to sell its half-interest in Interscope back to Mr. Iovine in 1995, he promptly pocketed a $100 million profit by turning around and selling that half of his company to MCA for twice as much. 'I owe this guy,' he says of Mr. Bennett. 'And now they're teaching Tupac in high schools to interest kids in reading.'"
Tupac's Revenge on Bennett, by Frank Rich, NYT Op/Ed, May 18, 2003

Bill Bennett couldn't find mainstream culture, let alone get it right, with both hands. A fool and a scoundrel, with our without his money, is still a fool and a scoundrel. But I still don't know why Bennett's obvious greed wasn't enough to pull him down. Oh Lord, how much must these people sin before they pay the price? While we here on the Left get endlessly scolded just for being good, live and let live, types. Weired, no?

Are there any right-wing culture warriors that are NOT hypocrites, lunatics or any of those other ics?
