    Only in America...

    I agree, though, that some interesting coalitions have formed around specific issues. It must make the business-as-usual center very nervous, which is okay by me.

    •  Political left and right (0+ / 0-)

      are very relative terms. I find it very difficult to come up with a single global standard.

        connotations that go beyond simple placement on a spectrum. Think DFH.

        There is incontestably a far right in this country in the "wing nut" sense of the term. There simply isn't a far left in that sense - certainly not in Congress - not even relatively.
