Mark Pinsky makes the case that ousted Congressman Alan Grayson should challenge President Obama in the 2012 Democratic presidential primaries. It starts out as an argument for Grayson running against the war in Afghanistan, but quickly escalates -- if you'll pardon the expression -- into a call for a full-blown left-wing insurgency.
Pinsky does worry that even a semi-successful Grayson campaign could weaken Obama against the Republicans. More oddly, he frets that "the challenge would pit a left-wing Jew against a centrist African-American." Since Grayson would probably be more John Ashbrook than Gene McCarthy, I wouldn't worry.
