You might want to define a liberal as one who preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:
• creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
• satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
• augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
• rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

There is more that could be added, this is just a starting point for the discussion that should follow.

H/T to Dr. Rossiter and “The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness”

This should be fun. I see the Frisch (the closet racist?) oops, maybe I am not defining him correctly, is whining about his time out over here. It is no use to explain anything to his closed mind but good luck.

RussS 858am - thanks for that expansion. The updated G&S is already a work-in-progress (WIP), and I'll definitely see how those points will fit into the overall definition as I use it here.

ToddJ 858am - (you both must have hit the send key simultaneously, which is why we also include the name) I hope that you and fellow commenters add candidate words to the G&S; words that SHOULD be included because of their frequent use, and not just words that COULD be included for the hell of it.


You need a category for "Birtherism and other Crackpot Ideas."

TomK 1039pm - so noted, thanks.

Can we also add gin?

Noun. A drink when consumed, makes participants tend to agree with Mr. Rebane. (not sure about Greg, but I'd be happy to buy him a around to see what happens).

Verb (to gin): the action of buying drinks for people you might otherwise disagree with.

I'd also like to add demand-side econ and supply-side econ.

RyanM 551pm - Now you tell me; I didn't know it was that easy, else ...

Ryan Mount

Gin was an effective tool during the Reformation to keep the huddled masses in check. Well, at least they could tell who the rebel rousers were.

We can experiment on Doug with a couple of rounds.


Works great on me, but more than two and after November, you'll have to take me to the hospital and try out Romney's, new, "OhBlameYouCare Health Plan," and I don't think I'll be able to afford it.
