Sure Are Liberal with Their Use of Liberal

I realize trying to get McCain, Palin, and the rest of the Republicans to use language as something we can at least pretend refers to things in the real world isn't easy, witness Senator Stevens not quite seeming to get "convicted felon." (OK, that might not be an issue of words, it might be he flouts the jury system, but what's "real American" about a trial by your peers? "Peers" sounds like such an English word, after all.) That said, if I hear the Obama-Pelosi-Reid troika invoked as the avatar of liberalism one more time, I'm going to throw my copy of Debs: His Life, Writings and Speeches at the television.

If Obama were so liberal, would he have flip-flopped on his vote for telecom immunity?

If Pelosi were so liberal, would Cindy Sheehan be running against her?

If, you gotta be f-ing kidding me, Reid were so liberal, would he be anti-choice? I mean, a super-liberal who thinks women are the test tube of god?

You'd think they would be more conservative with the liberal label.

I wonder if we're about to see a time when liberal use of conservative will become damning for awhile.

This one used to bother me more than it does now. It's just silly, really, but what do you expect?

They've even been trundling out "socialist," which is even funnier. Those damn socialists taking money from tax payers and giving it to Wall St. bankers.

What really gets the Mouth Breathers going is when you refer to our Democracy as, among other things, a "liberal democracy" which is exactly what we are.

Yeah, I know, given Obama is being called a Socialist, a Communist, and a terrorist, what's a little mis-applied liberal? Still, I like language.

Pelosi & Reid aren't liberal. Rickey wishes they were liberal. No, they're just massively incompetent.
