Reaching Across the Aisle

For the last year I've been corresponding through e-mail with my conservative relative who lives in Texas. He's convinced that the sun rises and sets with George W. Bush. I, of course, have a slightly different opinion. During our correspondence we began discussing the liberalness/conservativeness of the media. He, of course, is a firm believer in the mythical liberal media bias. Oftentimes, he would rant endlessly about the liberal media and liberal celebrities. My favorite quote of his is:

Of course we all know that one of the traits of liberals is that they look out for the little guy. (See quote at the top of this page.) So I find it hard to understand why he hates liberals so much. Nevertheless, he is who he is.

So in the interest of bi-partisanship, I thought I'd help him out a little. You know, reach across the aisle, as they say. After reading this story over at DailyKos, I thought that this could be a useful tool for today's hate-filled conservative. A little Liberals for Dummies if you will. Something they can refer to when they need someone to hate. So without further ado, I give you the Liberal List: Chapter 1 (complete with links for the more obscure).
