DENNY HASTERT UPDATE....Josh Marshall says he's talked to a bunch of reporters who have asked Dennis Hastert to clarify his remarks about George Soros' money coming from drug cartels. But instead of doing the non-insane thing and saying he didn't really mean it, apparently he's aggressively repeating the charge to anyone who will listen. Soros has now written him a letter demanding a retraction.

It's just another example of the thuggish nature of the Republican leadership these days. It's also an example of their bizarre detachment from reality (aka "making shit up"), since Soros' career as a money manager, currency speculator, and philanthropist is well known. It's no secret where Soros made his money. Just ask John Major.
