The skinny on Jeffery T. Kuhner:
Kuhner was born in Montreal, Canada. After teaching US history from 1998 to 2000 at McGill University in Montreal, Kuhner worked from 2000 through 2003 as an assistant national editor at the Washington Times. After leaving the Washington Times, he worked for the Republican policy group the Ripon Society as communications director and editor of the "Ripon Forum." He was the editor of the US Internet news magazine "Insight on the News" from October 2005 until its closing in May 2008.


The Ripon Society was founded December 12, 1962, in Cambridge, Massachusetts at Harvard College. The name is a reference to Ripon, Wisconsin, the birthplace of the Republican Party.

One of the main goals of the Ripon Society is to promote ideas and principles that have contributed to the GOP's past success. These ideas include keeping our nation secure, keeping taxes low, and having a federal government that is smaller, and more accountable to the people.
Kuhner has retired from the Washington Times and is currently hosting a conservative talk radio show.

Considering the nature of conservative talk radio show hosts, I would hardly have expected Kuhner to be glowing with praise for Obama.

Gotta do better than that, GfS.
