Whatever happened to TRUE liberalism -- the generous idea that people are entitled to their opinions, even if we disagree? I don't particularly like Ms. Thomas, but she's entitled to speak her mind without being pilloried for it, and her resignation demanded.
In the past, when a beauty contestant was asked a question, it was to see if she could think on her feet, and answer questions with poise. Now she must give the politically correct answer, or the so-called "liberals" will try to ruin her.
PS: I'm not a conservative, but a rational, independent moderate.
