An explanation of the Manichean world view of the Left, which today includes all of the Democrat party. As I put it here:
This is an administration that seems reflexively to personalize and demonize opponents rather than deal with opposition to policy. The White House staff, from the president down, seems to think of themselves as children of light and the opposition as children of darkness. This is, of course, literally a religious word view, and worse, an apocalyptic one that moves inexorably toward a decisive showdown when the children of light crush their enemies absolutely.
It may work in Chicago, but how soon, as James Taranto asked in the Wall Street Journal, will Mr. Obama understand that following the Rules for Radicals is not governing?
