Keith Thompson explains why he has left "the house the left has built." A paragraph, but the whole thing is worth reading:
Im leaving the left -- more precisely, the American cultural left and what it has become during our time together.
I choose this day for my departure because I can no longer abide the simpering voices of self-styled progressives -- people who once championed solidarity with oppressed populations everywhere -- reciting all the ways Iraqs democratic experiment might yet implode.
