520    At last, those on the left have a fast-talking champion 
       with fresh ideas to counter the outrageous barbs of 
       conservatives like Newt Gingrich and Rush Limbaugh, who 
       have cowed Capitol Hill and dominated talk radio. Smiley 
       is particularly harsh on Black conservatives like Ken 
       Hamblin and Armstrong Williams, who he feels have betrayed
       the Black community. But Smiley isn't afraid to take on 
       traditional politics-as-usual liberals as well. Smiley 
       says it was the liberals' determined refusal to 
       acknowledge the flaws of social programs and policies, 
       from affirmative action to welfare, that gave 
       conservatives the opening they needed to rechart the 
       nation's course. Now, Smiley warns, that course has taken 
       America dangerously close to the rocky shoals of the 
       extreme right. 
520 8  Hard Left is a clarion call for liberal politicians and 
       leaders to pick themselves up off the ground, tear a page 
       out of the conservative playbook, and counter the 
       conservative offensive by tackling the political and 
       racial issues that go to the core of our society.
