The Left Dumbs Down
That's the name of Nicholas Kristof's latest piece at the NYTimes. He details the ridiculous things the Left has been saying of late, and along the way, he makes this comment: "When my columns criticize the Bushies, I get torrents of e-mails cheering me on, but in terms so strident that they appall me."
You know why that is, Mr. Kristof? Because -- as Peggy Noonan and Bill Bennett have both said of late -- politics dominates the lives of too many liberals and Democrats, to the point that that everything is read through the prism of the political.
