Adequate of the leftist lunatics like Rosie O'Donnell who imagine "Radical Christians" are "as significant a risk to the United States as Radical Muslims." sufficient of the hyperbolic liberal rhetoric evaluating Bush to Saddam and Mel Gibson to Hitler. sufficient of the hyper-partisan, ultra-PC liberal media, which frequently appear extra sympathetic to the "victims of humiliation" at Abu Ghraib than to our troops death by the hands of Iraqi fundamentalists. adequate, too, of the gutless wonders at the correct who shouldn't have the braveness to face up for his or her personal convictions. sufficient in their pandering, trolling for votes, and outspending the Democrats. Now with strong and provocative new fabric, Bernard Goldberg's Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the best sounds an excellent louder alarm than before—warning that, if the wimps at the correct do not regain their braveness and reclaim their ideas, the crazies at the left simply could win the White apartment in '08.

Let’s leave the small stuff to smaller minds and get to what is truly important: Why, indeed, do liberals detest Fox News with such a burning passion? Why do they hate Bill O’Reilly more than Osama bin Laden and almost as much as Dick Cheney? Why, in places like the Upper West Side of Manhattan, do their eyes roll reflexively at the mere mention of the words “Fox News,” in much the same way as your leg jerks when the doctor hits your knee with a rubber hammer? Why, in other words, does Fox News loom so large in the fevered liberal imagination?
When did Republicans lose their nerve on race? And why? I suspect it has something to do with the Democrats’ all-purpose bogeyman, Karl Rove, who has always been trolling for votes— even before George W. Bush became a lame duck. Pick up a few black votes here and a few more there, and who knows, maybe it could change the outcome of an election. But the pandering has its roots not just in political practicality, but also in fear. Race is, after all, the most volatile issue in American life. And for white politicians it’s also the most terrifying, “one that, at the merest whiff of a charge of ‘racism,’ transforms even normally principled leaders into panderers and cowards,” as Harry Stein once put it in a piece for City Journal magazine.

In the end, this is about liberals themselves and the serious psychological problem they’re having adapting to a changing world.
