Knee Jerk Liberal is a term I have been inundated with my entire life, I guess dating from the 60’s, when the hippies and radicals protested againt the establishment for being, ya know, the establishment. And labels stick.
But looking at the organization and partisanship of the parties in the last two decades, conservative block voting, talking point blitzes, Limbaugh’s Ditto Heads, Fox’s Fair and Balanced reporting, and the seeming consensus that the Democrats were being pounded in congressional and presidential elections in part because they couldn’t all agree enough about anything to get behind a consistent message, why do Liberals still have the knee-jerk label? I mean these days, who’s the biggest jerk?
