And Speaking Of Multiplicity

Last night, I noted several examples of the far left recreating the institutions of the right — the same ones they previously condemned as beneath contempt — during the naughts. Air America, MSNBC, and Media Matters are all examples of the left taking conservative ideas and cloning them in the Play-Doh Fun Factory machinery.

Perhaps the one example of the right stealing a base from the left in recent years has been James O’Keefe and Andrew Breitbart borrowing the template from the Saul Alinsky Rules for Radicals playbook — and that leaves this leftwing journalist at the Politico most unhappy.

They don’t get Beck’s humor either, even as they steal his gags.
