"Words have actual meanings"

Video passed along by Erika "Wildgirl" Dana, former great WFMU DJ, now lives on a farm in Iowa, entrepreneurial woman, rescuer of abandoned & injured animals, father-in-law was a lovely, respected midwestern poet with sharp eyes & an exacting, descriptive observer of nature.

Bigotry is like the stupid, old joke; a guy sees something in the road, bends over, says, "Looks like it. Smells like it. Tastes like it. Glad I didn't step in it." Exhibit enough bigoted qualities, it is what it is no matter what.

How "liberal" are Democrats that piss off people who identify themselves first as liberals, secondly as voters likely to vote Democrat if & when they vote, & not at all as regular party Democrats? A lot of them ain't votin' at all this year.  The party misidentifies them as a "base," but they  aren't automatic; their votes have to be solicited.   Even I'm not really a "Democrat," but rather someone who never finds a Republican on the ballot he'll vote for. I registered Democrat in Elizabeth because Democratic primaries here decide local elections.

I deleted the first comment because I commented about the baseball game, which I had already commented on last night doah!

As for "how liberal," I think you know how I feel about that. Not liberal enough to get my vote next Tuesday. Nothing so far has managed to make me change my mind about that.
In south Jersey somewhere, the Dems put a fake Tea Party Candidate (but a real person) on the ballot to take away votes from the republicans. Politics sucks.
That's desperate. If anybody's stupid enough to fall for it they deserve whoever they get.
