I don’t know what else to file this under but humor, because it is just a laugh a minute at Oliver’s:
Because I’m blunt, a lot of people assume I’m an extremist liberal. Which, as a pro-death penalty, pro-free marketer, strikes me as funny. I’m an advocate of a party and a set of ideals well within the American mainstream. As are most Democrats.
I am against the current War on Drugs. Guess that makes me a liberal, hunh? Stop giggling- Oliver is serious.
*** Update ***
From the “You Can’t Make This Shit Up” Files, Oliver’s very next post states the following:
More Phony Dems On Fox – Submitted by Oliver Willis on Tue, 02/15/2005
Martin Frost, along with Susan Estrich, Alan Colmes, and Pat Caddell make up the Washington Generals to Fox’s Globetrotters.
Only thing I dislike more than a right-winger is a “liberal” who enables right-wingers. Sheesh.
Martin Frost is a moderate. Estrich is a liberal. Colmes is an avowed liberal- he just looks like a moderate when sitting next to Hannity. Pat Caddell was a liberal for 20 years before Oliver was born.
