PowerLine has graciously reprinted David Horowitz's stirring pamphlet, "Go For the Heart: How Republicans Can Win," which in reality is a 6,000-word screed that goes for the jugular, because Democrats are rotten. You may recall former New Leftist Horowitz from his reformed, radical rightist years of online toil devoted to convincing America's parents that our colleges and universities are brimming with subversive layabouts and Trotskyite cutthroats; woe to the innocent American youth who offers his tabula rasa to the wicked designs of the scheming professorial class.
To give you some idea of Mr. Horowitz's intellectual integrity in the hustling of such garbage, it was three or four years ago that I heard him remark in a television interview that college professors led lives of great ease and immense pay; they merely popped into a classroom two or three times a week and their work was done. What could be simpler? A couple weeks later I hear him remark in another television interview that there weren't many women in the academic sciences because so few were willing to undergo the grueling hours--up to 80 a week, of research, writing, and teaching--required of a college professor.
But do read his screed in Powerline, as much as you can take, anyway. It bubbles with ahistorical oddities such as, "The Democratic Party has been moving steadily to the left since the McGovern campaign of 1972," and glistening boogeymen like, "Their agenda is ... to achieve power to dictate the fundamental transformation of American society into a socialist-redistributionist state."
Good old Dave. He hasn't lost his touch.
