Stalinist Indeed!

At Kesher Talk, Van headed a post, Nutroots Go Stalinist in CT.

Stalinist, indeed.

It turns out that Lamont's father is:
Corliss Lamont was a brilliant, very wealthy by inheritance, communist fellow-traveler through the '30’s and '40’s and '50’s, who continued in such anti-U.S. foreign policy crusades on to his death in 1995, having opposed the 1991 Persian Gulf War.
Bruce Kessler at Democracy Project, has the opinions of Lamont's father. They could come right out of a Kos Diary today.
The fact is, of course, that both the Truman and Eisenhower Administrations, in order to push their enormous armaments programs through Congress and to justify the continuation of the cold war, have felt compelled to resort to the device of keeping the American people in a state of alarm over some alleged menace of Soviet or Communist origin.
They are all like that.

UPDATE: It turns out this guy is Lamont's grandfather, not his father.
