Y'know how the media keeps talking about a GOP civil war because Dede Scozzafava wasn't conservative enough and was "forced out", and apparently the GOP only wants far-right voices and no "moderate Republicans", even though you never see a definition for the term "moderate Republican"? Yeah. I'm curious: how tolerant are liberal Democrats of moderate voices? I ask because it's funny how pro-choice Democrats are attacking the Blue Dogs for supporting the Stupak Amendment in the health care bill, claiming it takes away women's reproductive rights (because as we all know, women not having access to free abortions is just like saying they can't have them at all). Or what about how many congressional Democrats don't support the public option. There hasn't been any gnashing of the teeth over that from Dems about other Dems, has there? Or, hey, what about that other big social issue, gay marriage? In the past year, not only did they elect a guy who said he doesn't support it? But in the past year, we've seen three states (CA, FL, and ME) vote Democratic and vote against gay marriage. Hmm. How tolerant are the liberal Dems of people opposed to gay marriage, even the ones that are otherwise Democrats? At least cap and trade has consistent support. Oh wait, my bad. Yeah, no "civil war" among the Democrats. They're the paragons of ideological purity.
