Quick link - on the new Right

The Long Island Jewish Star, which serves a modern Orthodox community, wades into the blogosphere's turmoil over Little Green Football's public break with the right-wing. I generally stay away from these issues, but I imagine that many "9/11 Republicans" are equally uncomfortable with some of the rhetoric that is coming out of the American Right nowadays, and the hypocrisy from people who were rightly upset at the Left's demonization of Bush while they happily encourage the exact same kind of disrespect for a sitting American president. Both sides tend to be hijacked by extremists when not in power. (Don't expect me to dwell on this topic.)
