Want your city to be "trashed?"

In one of the most telling comments ever, a Daily Kos contributor admits that associating the word "liberal" with a city is "trashing" the city.

On "This Week" on ABC this morning, John Ensign, the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) called Colorado democratic senate candidate Mark Udall a "Boulder liberal." So he continues the decades-old republican habit of trashing entire cities and entire regions. We have heard this elitism before. Everything from "San Francisco liberal" to "Massachusetts liberal" to "left coast." As it turns out, everyone who isn't from either a red state or red city is a frenchified snob. This is the product of gross arrogance and self-entitlement. Everyone who doesn't vote for them is a Volvo-driving latte-sipping un-American pig.

You would think that Mark Udall would be trying to move away from the Boulder Liberal tag, and he did, not by moving toward the center of the political spectrum, but by moving a few miles out of town.

Readers should recall that we have a scoreboard running where msm and liberal blogs routinely refer to Mark Udall as anything but a moderate. The terms the msm and liberals themselves use to describe Udall are "extremist, reliably left wing, and liberal." This far left blogger opines that inserting the word "Boulder" in front of a political term they, themselves use to describe Udall is to trash that city. Telling, isn't it?
