Tom Kiefaber: Drunk Uncle, or Truth-Teller?

So, after reading the recent piece about Tom Kiefaber in the Sun, and particularly Kiefaber’s highly entertaining series of rants in the comment thread, my only question is this: Is Kiefaber now the Crazy Drunk Uncle of Baltimore politics, or is anything he said here true?

Kiefaber is by no means the only person to have questioned the ethics and utility of the BDC, and it’s easy to dismiss him as a bitter, insane crackpot. But what if he isn’t? Does anyone care enough to find out?
