TPM Reader DR moves in a very different direction …

This may not be the issue everyone is talking about this morning, but I’m increasingly pissed off about the liberal vs. moderate framing everyone is using for last night’s debate.

I’ve been a liberal my whole life (60+ years) and now I’m a moderate or a centrist? No f—ing way. I’m heir to a long liberal tradition in this country that has always opposed the excesses of the left.
