A Series of Tweets from #LiberalElites

Means I champion Lady Liberalty. What I don’t feel great about is being pegged as “liberal elite.” I believe it’s the right’s way of saying, “Quit yer critical thinkin’ and yer educated assessin’ and git with the Confederacy.” Wait wait!

Guess I’ll have to start celebrating my liberal elitism with a hashtag…
