  1. I always assume anyone who describes themselves as “open-minded” is just using shorthand for “I have left-wing views and if you don’t agree with them you are a bigot.”
    BTW, your link is no good.

  2. That’s pretty correct, though.
    That *was* the opposite of open-mindedness.
    Too bad she wasn’t aware that she was describing her *own* actions.

  3. JustOneMinute http://justoneminute.typepad.com/main/2009/03/more-civil-liberties-poseurs.html has a post, entitled More Civil Liberties Poseurs, which quotes The American Prospect’s Ezra Klein castigating a CitiGroup equity analyst who thinks CardCheck will hurt WalMart.
    Admonishes Klein, “This is a moment when you’d expect Citibank to be on its best behavior … in terms of its political action… In fact, they appear to be dispatching their analysts and leveraging their ratings division to oppose a policy that the Obama administration supports.”
    I guess the new rule is that free speech is okay so long as it doesn’t appear to oppose Obama Administration policy. Jeez.
