Whistling Dixie

One of the wonderful things about the left wing blogs is that they copy each other, sometimes word for word. There is a post making the rounds that is going to help us with our "Mark Udall is not a moderate" scoreboard.

It is called "My Fantasy Congress Team." These guys don't even change the title. There is no verbiage, just a list of liberals in congress with titles like "upper senator,"" lower senator," "allstars," and "supporting lineup."

Mark Udall is one of two congressmen in the "supporting lineup." Given that the other members of Congress are all easily identifiable liberals, we are assuming that the writers intend to tag Mark Udall as a liberal. There are two left wing blogs with this post so far, here, and here.

We are incrementing the liberal line by two.

The Mark Udall is not a moderate scoreboard
extremist 2
reliably left wing 4
liberal 16
moderate 0
conservative (belly laugh)

This scoreboard was started when we noticed that liberal blogs and the msm were calling Mark Udall a liberal, reliably left wing, and even an extremist. This scoreboard does not include data from any conservative blog and excluded a TV interview of a Republican politician. Those who wish to check its methodology can follow the bread crumbs back. .
