Excerpt:Â Bernard Goldberg's latest book, "Crazies to the Left of me, Wimps to the Right," ultimately lacks the courage to say what needs to be said: Liberals are traitors.Goldberg's basic thesis is that liberals have abandoned the core principles of men such as FDR and JFK, while the Republicans have lost their courage. His assessment of Republicans is spot on.
Republicans are wimps. At least some of them are.
But on the other salient point he is wrong â€“ fundamentally wrong. Liberals aren't just "loony" or "stupid." These are all adjectives he uses to describe the principal players in mainstream liberalism. And neither is liberalism just "becoming increasingly irrelevant," as he asserts. I wish Goldberg were right about that. I wish liberalism were irrelevant â€“ if that were true, we wouldn't have to worry so much about what 2008 might have in store.
