Wow. The Republican Party leadership (sic) has spun Cronon's description of their open records request, along with his good natured "c'mon in and have a look!" as a request that they withdraw it. Cronon never made such a request. In fact, he welcomed the request since it will only serve to verify his conclusion that the Republican Leadership has adopted McCarthyism as it's operational blueprint.
This is a brilliant example of the truth that True Believers only see their own worst fears.
