Not Much Left An excellent piece from Marty Peretz, editor of the New Republic, on what has happened to the Liberal/Left side of American politics. It isn't pretty.

Ask yourself: Who is a truly influential liberal mind in our culture? Whose ideas challenge and whose ideals inspire? Whose books and articles are read and passed around? There's no one, really. What's left is the laundry list: the catalogue of programs (some dubious, some not) that Republicans aren't funding, and the blogs, with their daily panic dose about how the Bush administration is ruining the country.
