It's bad enough when David Gregory and other news programs use false equivalency narratives to paint the left as being as radical as the Tea party is, but then they flatout show their utter Beltway contempt for liberals in their new NBC/Esquire feature poll: The New American Center. I didn't see these ideological designations in the Esquire article on the poll, but Chuck Todd and NBC sure flogged it all day yesterday.
In their eyes, conservatives are the 'Righteous Right,' while liberals are 'Bleeding Hearts.' Isn't that an adequate description of both parties? One party is bleeding all over your floor defending trees over humans and the other party has been graced by GOD to always do the right thing. Their breakdown of the second part of the left was almost as ridiculous. Did you know we have a 'Gospel Left' section in the left? WTF is that anyway? They adequately designate other righties as the 'Talk Radio Heads.'
Check out Chuck Todd explaining how the New (yet again) Middle has emerged to tell both political parties what to do, again. And how bleeding hearts are losing out in the big political picture.
