When NeoCons say "liberal," they mean "everything to the left of Attila the Hun," so it's hard to pin down what part of the population they mean. QUOTE "i am sorry but the liberal mainstream did indeed attack her...it is sad" Yeah, asking her those difficult questions like "What magazines do you read to stay informed?" Again, the NeoCon Right puts on a martyr face and claims that any criticism is an attack. She was rightly criticized for not being familiar with policy beyond the standard NeoCon boilerplate. She got that criticism from the news organizations, what NeoCons would call the "liberal media." But she's also been hammered in tabloids and things like that after she drug out this back-and-forth with Letterman, trying to once again make herself a martyr. She actually had the high ground when she first condemned the remarks, but then she drug it out too far.
