Tyrrell: "The liberal has the political libido of a nymphomaniac, at times of a sex offender"
Blog ››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF
From R. Emmett Tyrrell Jr.'s April 16 Washington Times column:
Yet liberal justices on the Supreme Court found a "right" in the Constitution that never is mentioned in that document - the right to privacy. Thus was abortion brought down on the nation, not through the will of the majority but through the willfulness of a minority, the liberals.
The entire controversy brings to mind a thesis of mine about liberals and conservatives that I elaborate on enthusiastically in my new book, "After The Hangover: The Conservatives' Road to Recovery," which comes out this coming week. The liberal has the political libido of a nymphomaniac, at times of a sex offender. It is impossible to restrain. By comparison, the conservatives' political libido is more subject to reason and restraint. Almost nothing restrains the liberals' political activism. Conservatives' are more disciplined. Process matters to them.
