Liberal is a dirty word to most of those on the left as well. Most of them that I hear won't even admit they're liberal. Or they'll hedge it, as in "I'm, you know, kinda liberal."
strange! conservatives i know are doing the same thing with the word conservative. especially now that conservatives are associated with (1) pedophilia with Foley scandal, (2) incompetence in war planning with Iraq/Afghanistan, and (3) fiscal irresponsibility in record deficit and debt.
