A couple of reports -- one by the Associated Press and another by Voice of America -- tell that Obama's Homeland Security chief, Janet Napolitano is worried about "extremism" in the U.S.

(Note: although this story is reported on many new Websites, so far, there have only been two sources: AP and VOA. For example, the Fox News story is actually from the AP.)

Now, nowhere does either report mention "right wing extremism." But neither does it mention "left-wing" extremism. But, because Napolitano has supported last spring's report concerning "right-wing extremist groups," I have a feeling about to whom she's referring: me.

I fit the profile of the DHS report: ex-military, extreme right-wing.

To which I repeat the words of Barry Goldwater:
I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.
I ought to put that on my blog somewhere.
