Fred Thompson Tells it Like it Is
Well, Fred Thompson succeeded in pissing the left-wing of the Democratic Party off by saying that MoveOn and Harry Reid are “adhering, to the extent they can, to the most left-wing element of their base.”
Faiz and others can try to make themselves look like the mainstream all they can, but these people are even considered to be left-wing here, in the Netherlands.
Even Daily Kos repeats the talking point: they are not far left, no, they are ‘mainstream’ and those who disagree with their views are simply ‘right-wing’.
Never ask an extremist whether his views are extreme.
