Moderate is in the Eye of the Hack Beholder

Can’t be said enough when indicting the lazy, hackish Beltway press that of all their horrible, horrible faults the one that maybe does the most damage (or is at least most galling) is how they will label some Republicans moderate (Marco Rubio) even though their beliefs and policies differ not a jot from the extremists (way too long a list to name).

And vice versa for the Dems – if they don’t like you (Bernie Sanders) you’re an extreme, dangerous, lefty, leftist, socialist, puppy hater. If they do like you then you’re a firebrand Democrat and a fighter, or something (Elizabeth Warren).
