On September 17 I argued that Richard Hofstadter's famous piece, "The Paranoid Style in American Politics" was newly relevant today, albeit applied to the extreme left wing rather than the right wing Hofstadter originally discussed.

Today, renowned (and new Bradley Award winner) columnist Charles Krauthammer ends his column as follows: "Kennedy's rant reflects the Democrats' blinding Bush-hatred, and marks its passage from partisanship to pathology."

Pathology. Newmark's Door: remember where you read it first!
