    "liberal" was an insult, but not in the same way it is now. It meant "overcautious, work-within-the-system, avoid any fundamental change" behavior and the criticism was from the left.

    Was this Phil Ochs? Yes, no doubt: A liberal is somone who is "10 degress to the left of center in good times, 10 degress to the right of center when it affects him personally..."
