What this shows, quite simply, is a lack of simple decency on the part of liberal Democrats. Absurdly self-righteous about their concern for the poor, blacks, human rights and a host of other nice-sounding generalities, they happily accept smears directed toward people who disagree with their political agenda.

When you are a great believer in social justice, acting decently toward people on the other side of key issues doesn’t really seem necessary
