Not a Moderate

Yesterday, David Harsanyi, a writer and blogger for the Denver Post made the following comment on his blog:

But let’s define our terms: A “moderate” means a candidate that sees things a little more clearly — like a Democrat. As my co-blogger David Sirota proves in his posts, there is rarely a conservative who isn’t “far-right” or “extreme.” Conservative positions are by default extreme to many liberals.

So while we’re on the topic of moderate candidates: Udall, who I admire for many reasons, is an unwavering liberal. Not a moderate. His recent vote for the so-called “Employee Free Choice Act” is further proof that he stands to the left of the mainstream.

In case you are counting, the score since we began writing on this blog as to whether Mark Udall is a moderate or liberal is as follows:

Extreme 2
Liberal 5
Moderate 0
Conservative 0

Most of those votes come from the MSM, though a couple come from left wing (by their own description) blogs.

Harsani likely wouldn't object if we put him in the "very far left wing" camp, given his comments in this one post.

"Harsayni" is how you spell David's name.

Where did these "votes" come from?
