re: #206 Filala
My dear, as Walter points out, these are in general well-known political tactics, used by right and left time out of mind, and easily identified as being currently used by the wingnut fringe against the Obama administration. (Possibly due to the wingnut fringe’s odd elevation of poor old Saul Alinsky.)
But my question remains—where did you get the idea that this book was still, in any way, influential among ‘leftists’, let alone the Democratic party? Do you really think that Barack Obama refers to Alinsky? Bill Clinton? Nancy Pelosi? Claire McCaskill? Barbara Boxer?
