    If you think Handy is "far left," you're nuts. I'm three time zones to the left of Handy, and even I'm nowhere near Bernie Sanders land, and even he's nowhere near the real far left. The far right, OTOH, have their idiots being primaried out of Congress races because they're not far right enough.

    What color is the sky in your world? What's "center-left" there? Orrin Hatch?

        Speaking of nutbars, the Comments responding to this post say it all.

        God knows (apparently, since they invoke him every fifth post) what those people will say on election day. "Voter fraud," presumably.

          John Silber, former BU president, and 1990 Democratic governor candidate died. I think I found a reason why he lost... Not enough American Flags.

          Next time we see a presidential candidate, count the # of flags in the background. Are they getting excessive, or has Christopher Walken decided he has a need for more flags?

                That's right, your all relatively moderate and it's just those awful righties that are extreme. Does it ever dawn on you how hollow that argument is?

                  You don't think the right has swung wildly to its fringe in the last ten years?

                  I suppose you don't think the left swung wildly to its fringe in the 70's?

                  And the thing is, you're not even mainstream right anymore! You have some... interesting... views on immigration and reproductive health, but your views on economic and social justice are utterly anathema to the current GOP. To them, YOU are far left!

                          yeah, whenever I get into a conversation with real Republicans they get impatient with me for my moderation. This is about the only place I've ever been outside of a union rally where I'm considered right wing. My support for the estate tax and a wealth tax and my statements saying some redistribution of wealth is not only reasonable but desireable immediately get me excommunicated!

                              I'm pretty sure this is just a restatement of "My friends to the left of me think I'm to their right. My friends to the right of me think I'm to their left." Tautological, but it doesn't prove that you're a moderate.
                              If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?
