The mystery of what Mary McCarthy looks like continues. As yet, the most recent pictures of her remain those few dated 2003. But I'm still looking!
In the Mary McCarthy news today ...

8 Mind in the Qatar has put together a graphic illustrating The McCarthy Connection. He notes: Yes, I know that I forgot Richard Clarke, and if I get time, I will try to update the chart tonight.
8 Sister Toldjah points out the 6 degrees of Mary McCarthy: In the case of Mary McCarthy, there are more than six “degrees” tying her to various Democrats and CIA officers and/or defenders.
8 The Prowler reports that while McCarthy may be in denial, Howard Dean and others at the Democrat National Committee are looking to some of their donors to set up a legal defense fund for McCarthy. "If Scooter Libby can have a legal defense fund and website, then McCarthy should have one too," says a DNC staffer.
8 AJ Strata says: I think I have figured out McCarthy’s Clintonesque denials coming out of Ty Cobb.
8 In MacsMind, The Net Closes: The key is McCarthy and how bad she wants that pension. Will she flip? That distinct possibiliy has a lot of people very nervous.
8 I've saved the most delicious for last :-) Wonkette received a tip that Mary McCarthy is “extremely irritating to be around, according to former law school classmates of hers.” … According to the tipster: [Mary McCarthy was] the night student from hell… You know who I’m talking about — she talked CONSTANTLY, had very little to say that was relevant to the class discussion, and was always ready to tell a lengthy anecdote about herself or her personal experiences. I don’t remember if I would have known she worked at the CIA, but I know she worked for the government. In general — your classic gunner, but add in a dose of superiority for being older than everyone else in the room.

8 Soprano Sue loved Sunday night’s episode of the SOPRANOS: Mr. Chase, you have restored my faith in the possibilities of television. Like Artie, you have gone back to cooking from scratch.
8 Dennis Prager tries to answer the question, Why Are Jews Liberal?: The question is entirely legitimate since Jews (outside of Israel) are indeed overwhelmingly liberal and disproportionately left of liberal as well. For example, other than blacks, no American group votes so lopsidedly for the Democratic Party. And the question is further sharpened given that traditional Jewish values are not leftist. That is why the more religiously involved the Jew, the less likely he is to be on the Left. The old saw, "There are two types of Jews -- those who believe Judaism is social justice and those who know Hebrew," contains more than a kernel of truth.
