Camille Paglia, who is a leftist..

I know she's eccentric and flambuoyant in some ways, but she's pretty smart. I doubt she's a lefty.

She’s hard to characterize. You are right, she’s not really a classic leftist, but here is an interesting paragraph from Wikipedia:

“Some of her views have been characterized as conservative,[2] but Paglia characterizes herself as a Clinton Democrat and libertarian.[5][53] She opposes laws against prostitution, pornography, drugs, and abortion.[60] Paglia criticized Clinton for not resigning after the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which she says led to America being “blindsided by 9/11”.[61] In the 2000 US presidential campaign she voted for the Green Party candidate Ralph Nader, “[because] I detest the arrogant, corrupt superstructure of the Democratic Party, with which I remain stubbornly registered”.[61] In the 2004 U.S. presidential election, Paglia supported John Kerry; and in 2008, she supported Barack Obama.”
