You Might Be A Liberal If:
1) You think that protestors outside nuclear power plants are dedicated activists, but protestors outside abortion clinics are dangerous zealots interfering with a legal activity.
2) You believe that even though the top 20 percent of taxpayers pay 80 percent of income taxes, that the rich are not paying their fair share.
3) You believe in global warming today just as firmly as you believed in global cooling back in the 1970s.
4) You mentally subtract 100 points from someone's IQ if the person speaks with a Southern accent.
5) You are dedicated to helping the poor, the downtrodden and the less fortunate, but you have never given blood.
6) You have no problem with Hollywood movie stars flying around in private jets to give speeches on the evils of SUVs.
7) You deplore prejudice and bigotry in all its forms, but think that everyone in the "red states" is an idiot.
8) You are worried about how the French view Americans.
9) You believe that nativity scenes should be banned from public view, but that anyone objecting to pornography only has to look the other way.
So, do you qualify? Are you a liberal?

OY. Been sold a bill of liberal goods, I see.

1) Dems believe that money can still be made using forms of energy that are safer and cleaner. Protesters outside abortion clinics are fine, but they really do need to stop shooting people. It kind of takes away from their whole murder message.
2) Dems understand that there is a occupation strata in place whose business is to find, manage and manipulate money for the wealthy. We really don't have that big a problem with wealthy people paying more taxes, actually. We think they have their bases covered.
3) We believe that if you pollute, it will affect the earth. We have piles of studies, satellite imagery and chemical proof that it is so. We don't particularly buy into the malarkey that if you say something isn't so, then it must not be so.
4) SIGH! Dems, many of who live in the south, are quite aware of authors Mark Twain, Kaye Gibbons, Edgar Allan Poe, Flannery O’Connor, Thomas Fleming, Michael Hill and William Faulkner; political leaders George Washington, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Henry Clay, and Woodrow Wilson; jazz musician Louis Armstrong; country singer Hank Williams, Sr.; and classical pianist Van Cliburn. Not to forget John Randolph of Roanoke, and the Southern and Midwestern-bred populist William Jennings. Also, don't mess with my boy, Brett Favre.
5) Blood, check. Money, check. Time, check. Beer? Nope. I gotta draw the line somewhere.
6) Actually, I think most Dems think that free speech is OK. It's a constitutional thang.
7) I? Live in a red state. I know lots of people, but only a few are stupid. Frankly, I think it's simple genetics. Or possibly, the 80's. It's a toss-up. I do think it's ironic that I am supposed to defend my supposed bigotry in response to an comment chock full of liberal stereotypes. Just sayin'.
8) Oh, so you're anti-French now, too? Who you calling a bigot, bub? ;-D
9) Well, not exactly. I despise pornography. I like Jesus. Dems are accepting of free will from God. Some people are just going to have a lot of 'splaining to do where they get upstairs. Point is, that God is the Ultimate legislator. Dems don't support micromanagement by individuals with personal agendas.

Thanks for the comments!

That was absolutely splendid. I have never seen the art of rebuttal so well exercised.

From the non-blood giving stupid red state, good job!
