Do I really believe that?
What I do know is that liberals have cried for years about how we mean conservatives use "Communist" to describe them unfairly, and that (shock upon shocks!) we use the word as a pejorative and not in the Kind, Positive Way that the term "Communist" was intended to intone.
So, what am I to make of the fact that Waldo Jaquith has reduced himself to using derogatory sexual terms to describe conservative protesters whom he happens to disagree with?
I'd say that when in Rome, do as the Romans would do.
In other words, point out that Waldo Jaquith is a proud Commie.
Wear that Red with pride, my friend.
