The Open-Minded Left

Carol Brown
We all know how open-minded the left is, right? I mean, they're all for equality. Certainly no one among them is a racist, right?

And yet they seem perennially obsessed about skin color. And religion.

That is, if the candidate is conservative.

Check out this Wolf Blitzer interview with Mia Love.

Ms. Love talks about limited government, fiscal discipline, and personal responsibility. Blitzer acts like he's deaf and talks about abortion.

Ms. Love talks about the common values we share as Americans, not as splintered demographic groups. Blitzer talks about how she'll have two colleagues in Congress. Why two? Because there are two other black Republican congressmen? In Blitzer's world, only they will get to be her colleagues. Talk about patronizing and insulting.

And of course, what interview could go by, even among the briefest of interviews, without zeroing in on religion. Mormonism to be precise. Because we all know the media did not and will not delve into black liberation theology or how our president spent his formative years informed by the tenets of Islam.

The liberal media remains frozen in time, consumed by skin color, selectively concerned about religion, and strangely focused on gender. And per the latter, why is it (as evidenced in this interview and so many others) that the media harps about how Romney has captured less of the female vote compared to Obama, yet pay no attention to the fact that Obama captures less of the male vote?

Wait! Let me guess! Because men are evil. Whereas women are precious victims whose vote is more valuable because of their special status.

Let's win in November and watch the media spin that.
