Who's extreme?

Jonah Goldberg poses a great question: Why not Santorum? 

The right is often rebuked for being a party of uncompromising ideological zealots.  Terms like extreme right and right-wing Christian are effortlessly used by many.  And yet, the Democratic Party elected a man who is arguably one of the most leftist presidents in history who vowed to transform America.  Maybe, as suggested by Goldberg's question, right-wing extremists are fairly moderate. 

Is there such a thing as the extreme left?  Left-wing secularists?  Can anyone be too far left?
