    John Avlon, past campaign consultant to both Bill Clinton and Rudy Guiliani, has a new book out, Wingnuts: How the Lunatic Fringe is Hijacking America.  Today on C-SPAN Book TV he spoke at a book signing in New York City.

    John's book attempts to draw equivalencies between the right wing fringe and the left wing fringe.  He spoke today at length giving examples of such comparisons, most of which were lame, but one of which was outrageous:  he actually compared the "hate talk" of Glenn Beck to the "rantings" of Alan Grayson.  Really.

    You'll be glad to know that the audience didn't agree with his false equivalencies at all and fairly well took him to task, which he put down to "being in New York."   No doubt he would have a more welcoming audience in parts of South Carolina or Mississippi or Texas or anywhere in Oklahoma.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
