GEPHARDT’S UNPERSUASIVE DEFENSE: I got the same email that Eugene Volokh did, and I know the source, so I can vouch for its reliability. But while I was off having a leisurely lunch talking about blogs with a colleague from the Journalism School, Eugene Volokh posted a lengthy analysis of Gephardt’s statement, together with a what-he-said-then-vs.-what-he’s-saying-now table. So rather than duplicate Eugene’s work, I’m going to send you there.
UPDATE: Stuart Buck is defending Gephardt. But I don’t think Gephardt is Lincoln.
