John Halle has taken to calling my CounterPunch article, No Lesser Evil, Not This Time, "idiotic" and part of the "lunatic and sociopathic left". These pathetic and childlike insults are part of a left that spends more time giving itself a thousand cuts than one good jab at the common enemy. I was even more hurt to read that Chomsky, quoted by Halle, thinks my article represents "left self-destruction" that is "adding new dimensions" through "contemporary irrationality and refusal to think".
