A couple of weeks ago, after noticing that Newt Gingrich was working references to “radical” Saul Alinsky into his stump rhetoric in an effort to radicalize Pres. Obama by association, I wrote a piece about Alinsky. Of couse, I wasn’t the only one.
Now the estimable Bill Moyers, who’s back at PBS in case you hadn’t noticed, adds a nice little film and his own drawling narrative to the Alinsky revival. Moyers is tougher on Gingrich than I was, but he also manages to juxtapose some Gingrich rhetoric with some Alinsky rhetoric thereby raising the question of whether Gingrich might be the real Alinskyite in the race. Enjoy:
