Why Them?

The respected Washington political newspaper, The Hill, regularly includes an online blog feature in which they ask for feedback regarding some recent event --here is an example. One of the responses they post is from the head of the John Birch Society. This is not the first time that his reactions have appeared in these kinds of pieces.

Why would a respectable publication look to such a fringe group for reaction? Clearly, there are plenty of opinion leaders on both the left and the right that can be turned to without giving legitimacy to a group on the lunatic fringe of American politics.

Will they get a quote from Lyndon LaRouche next?
