God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll: Conservatives are the new radicals

Excerpted from this post at God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll

As a Republican, I've gritted my teeth at the sarcasm, snarkiness, and
outright hostility directed at GOP leaders over the past few years by
the left. But I've respected the opposition's right to express
themselves freely and passionately. Now that Democrats are the new
Establishment, it's the right adopting the tactics of the left. "And
the 1971 agitator's handbook 'Rules for Radicals' -- written by Saul
Alinsky, the Chicago community organizer who was the subject of
Hillary Clinton's senior thesis, and whose teachings helped shape
Barack Obama's work on Chicago's South Side -- has been among Amazon's
top 100 sellers for the past month, put there in part by people who
'also bought' books by Michelle Malkin, Glenn Beck, and South Carolina
Republican Sen. Jim DeMint."
