The left is on the defensive (or offensive — take your pick) again.
Based on his title and content, left wing professional Markos Moulitsas in his American Taliban: How War, Sex, Sin, and Power Bind Jihadists and the Radical Right (not reviewed by myself) thinks it is clearly time for the left to "go to the matresses" a la The Godfather.
The left's offensive is a losing proposition, in my opinion. Some reviewers are painting this book, filled with ad hominem attacks from the right's noise machine and abhorred by the left, as a gut reaction, no more, no less. I mean Markos is not as cute as Coulter, not as gay as Rachel Maddow, nor as witty as Mark Levin, but he tries. But, I am unable to vouch for his latest attempt at setting the record straight.
The problem with the progressive movement is that if it leans too far to the left, it risks alienating true independents like myself who vote with the winner, regardless of party affiliation. (/irony)
