What's the single most deranged thing anyone has said about the Lamont-Lieberman race? The floor is open to nominations, but it'll be hard to top this lulu from David Horowitz:
America is not divided enough for the American Left, which is now in full purge mode in Connecticut, where it is attempting to bring down the one statesman in the Democratic Party who might re-unite this country in the face of its enemies.
An ordinary analyst, asked to pick the person most likely to unite the country in the face of anything, would probably not choose a senator so unpopular that he stands a good chance of losing in the primaries. It takes an extraordinary analyst to recognize that what appears to be the opinion of the electorate is actually the interference of that entirely alien force, "the American Left." Absent its power to cloud men's minds, voters would openly yearn for a little Joementum.
I can't help suspecting, incidentally, that if Cynthia McKinney loses in Georgia tomorrow, Horowitz won't be describing her defeat as a "purge."
