Barack Obama is the one American Marxists have been waiting for. Just look at his endorsements. He may be able to close the deal through the electoral process, a strategy his friends Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn thought impossible for the radical project back in the 60s and 70s. So writes AT frequent contributor Kyle-Anne Shiver today at National Review Online, in a wonderful essay full of the sort of wit and insight familiar to her many fans among AT readers. Read it here.
We're proud that Kyle-Anne has gained broader recognition, and doubly proud that she tops the list of articles on NRO today. National Review means a lot to many of us as the fountainhead of the modern American conservative movement. We count AT as a descendant of sorts in the lineage of serious political inquiry sparked by William F. Buckley.
As AT readers already know, Kyle-Anne combines penetrating analysis with a voice and style that are all her own. Her rising star is the result of her own talents. She'll be returning to these pages tomorrow with another essay on the American left, for AT remains her home. But we are happy to share her with the broadest public possible. Congratulations to both Kyle-Anne and National Review Online.
