If conservative pundits seek fodder for their rants about the Left, they need look no further than the March issue of The Sun. Starhawk [“Webs of Power”] writes and speaks eloquently, but undermines her own credibility by delving into “magic” as a protest stratagem. And Sparrow’s downright silly manifesto on revolution [“Yes, You Are A Revolutionary!”] is its own satire: “And, of course, there are explosives and guns.”

I have long considered myself a liberal, but if carrying that card means abandoning all rationality, I’ll throw in the towel and start watching Fox News.

Has it ever occurred to David M. Randall that silliness might be revolutionary?
