My grandfather went to his grave disappointed that he only made Richard Nixon's second "enemies list."

I bring this up because, apparently, David Horowitz has created a website purporting to identify links between various members of the left. Just the beta version is up so far, so there are plenty of gaps - but you can still discover a wealth of fascinating details. Did you know that Osama Bin Laden is on the "left?" The same "left" as the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation and the Baptist Joint Committee on Public Affairs? What fun they all must have together.

Anyway: surely America is a land in which children strive to do better than their grandparents. Surely I owe it to my grandfather to make it onto David Horowitz's first enemies list. Any suggestions for how to go about it?

Update: Horowitz took the site down. Fortunately, someone mirrored it first.

(Via Crooked Timber and Eschaton. And while you're surfing around, check out the real website of the Baptist Joint Committee on Public Affairs, whose tagline is "protecting religious liberty by keeping church and state separate.")
