      Way to go, folks -- demonstrating the actual depth of the empathy that veneers the real nature of a lot of us humans who happen to call ourselves "progressives," having courageously abandoned the "liberal" moniker rather than fight for the position, people who are also weak enough not to contest the neologistigation of "Conservative" from a much healthier understanding to what rules today.

      I bet the Roves and Gingriches just love to see us dividing and also conquering ourselves with our pattycake strategies and battles over nuance and coalition and "policy" and our internecine "Obamawar." Go beat up a Senior TODAY -- that will move things right along, now won't it?
