Jonah Goldberg recounts an Important Democratic Moment:
Later, at another gathering, Gloria Nieto, vice chair of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Caucus, broke into sobs, wondering aloud whether the Democrats would remain a welcoming home for lesbians. Dean immediately “leaped off the stage into the audience to hug her,” writes Carnes. “With a sob of his own catching his voice, he brought the audience to standing ovation” when he declared, “That’s why I am a Democrat.”
Yep, that pretty much describes the intellectual appeal of left-liberalism. Someone, somewhere, needs a hug.
Hold me, Ralph….
