The most liberal senator ever again

I can’t prove this, nor do I have any interest in looking for proof. I am not a lawyer, I’m a bullshitter. But I just heard a speech from John McCain (the Senator not the guy who invented the dehumidifier) where he called Barack Obama: “The most liberal Senator ever to run for office.” Now, I’m 100%  positive that this was a major speech point for Bush in 2004. I remember this being repeated over and over as though it meant something. “John Kerry is the most liberal Senator in the Senate.” What are the chances that everytime the Democrats run a candidate, that they run the most liberal one? And who would be the most liberal Senator if Hillary had won the nomination? Having listened to Conservatives in power most of my life I can’t tell you what happens when liberals run the United States, because they never follow up the scary warning with any information as to why this is bad, but I can tell from their tone that it sucks. In fact, so convinced are Conservatives that simply dropping the “L” bomb makes us run and hide under our beds, that they don’t very often follow up with why that’s bad. I know it has something to do with taxing, and then spending those taxes (it’s gonna suck to start paying taxes again, won’t it?) So, as a service to Republicans, and those who are unfamiliar with exactly how scared to be, after the jump I have included’s definition of liberal, so you know EXACTLY what they mean.
