Chris Matthews and Ann Coulter

Well, Chris Matthews lost me last night. Even tho' he did question Ann Coulter about some of the things she has written and said, he just fawned over her a little too much for me. I got sick of hearing him talk about how brilliant she is. I will have to find something constructive to do during that hour. By the way, that woman who came on after Coulter was supposed to be Elizabeth Dole. Do you think she had on a mask or was it an imposter?

Liberal, Ultra Liberal, etc.

When did being called a liberal or, God forbid, an ultra liberal get to be a bad thing? Why is it such an insult and candidates run away from being called that? According to Webster's, liberal means "1. giving freely; generous. 2. more than enough or than might be expected. 3. open to new ideas; broad-minded; tolerant. 4. broad in range; not limited. 5. in favor of reform or progress in politics or religion. n. a person who is in favor of reform and progress.

Wouldn't you think being called a liberal would be a good thing? Why have we let the Republicans make it into something bad? Why
