  •  Would have T&Rd for "political yapigentsia" alone! (6+ / 0-)

    Interesting observation about the distortion of the word "conservative," and its march toward being demonized as a result, the way "liberal" has been (though that, through no fault of its own, and no fault of liberals). I keep commenting that we need to stop calling the teabaggers "conservatives," b/c they truly are out to destroy, not conserve. "Conservative" is still too respectable a term for them, and it's the opposite of correct. We need to say "radical right" or something. Though I do like "wacko birds."
