Liberal McCarthyism
Bigotry and hate aren't just for right-wingers anymore.

WASHINGTON--My brief and unhappy experience with the hate and vitriol of bloggers on the liberal side of the aisle comes from the last several months I spent campaigning for a longtime friend, Joe Lieberman.

This kind of scary hatred, my dad used to tell me, comes only from the right wing--in his day from people such as the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy, with his tirades against "communists and their fellow travelers." The word "McCarthyism" became a red flag for liberals, signifying the far right's fascistic tactics of labeling anyone a "communist" or "socialist" who favored an active federal government to help the middle class and the poor, and to level the playing field.

GW - This confirms my suspicion that you are a closet Democrat and a planted operative inside the Republican camp. The article is as much admission that right-wingers are bigots (LOL).

Lanny is just rehashing something that conservatives have known for years. Just shows you are SLOW liberals truly are to learn.
