Liberal is the new moderate

A letter to the editor appeared in this week's Sun Sailor and Lakeshore Weekly News that illustrates how "moderate" is truly in the eyes of the beholder [with editor's notes]:
My definition of a moderate is someone who respects a woman's right to choose [abortion on demand], will stand strong behind the teaching of science [unless it conflicts with Darwinian macroevolution dogma] and will not allow the Constitution to be an instrument of politics and the religious right [but will allow the judiciary to be an instrument of politics and the secular left]. Until Judy [Johnson] answers these questions [liberally], I will not consider her a moderate.

My vote Nov. 7 will be for a senator with a proven track record on these issues, a genuine moderate, Sen. Terri Bonoff.
