Deciphering Liberal Code

Liberal-speak. That's the code by which liberals in this country attempt to communicate with the American people without giving away what they really mean. Liberal-speak has been quite common for some time, but since the recent nomination of Judge Samuel Alito for the U.S. Supreme Court, there has been an increase of coded messages coming from the left.

In case you're not familiar with the code, let me decipher some of it for you.

"It’s sad that the president felt that he had to pick a nominee likely to divide America, instead of picking a nominee like Sandra Day O’Connor that had united America.” –Senator Charles Schumer, D-NY.
Code: " a nominee likely to divide America" = a nominee that conservatives like
Code: "a nominee that united America" = a nominee that liberals liked

"The Senate needs to find out if the man replacing Miers is too radical for the American people." -Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV
Code: "is too radical for the American people" = is a conservative

"There are many serious questions about whether Judge Alito is a mainstream nominee…" -Senator Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass.
Code: " a mainstream nominee" = a liberal
"Apparently, he couldn't find a woman or minority or a mainstream nominee…" -Senator Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass.
Code: "a woman or minority" = a liberal woman or minority
Code: " a mainstream nominee" = a liberal

"Instead of seeking to unify the country with a nominee who would command wide consensus, the President again chose to submit to the dictates of the radical right." -House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-CA
Code: "a nominee who would command wide consensus" = a nominee that liberals like
Code: "to submit to the dictates of the radical right" = to do what conservatives elected him to do

“We now have to ask the basic questions of Judge Alito to determine whether he is in the mainstream or whether this nomination is simply an effort to appease the far right wing.” -U.S. Senator Dick Durbin, D-IL
Code: "to determine whether he is in the mainstream" = to determine whether he is liberal
Code: "to appease the far right wing" = to do what conservatives elected him to do

"I will take all actions necessary to ensure that the next justice is not an ideological activist" -Senator Jon Corzine, D-NJ
Code: "not an ideological activist" = not a conservative

“I’m disappointed that it appears President Bush chose to nominate a top choice of the extreme Right rather than a mainstream jurist more in line with the views of the American people. -Senator Chris Dodd, D-Conn.
Code: "to nominate a top choice of the extreme Right" = to do what conservatives elected him to do
Code: "a mainstream jurist more in line with the views of the American people" = a jurist liberals like

"Today, the President nominated a replacement designed to pacify these most extreme elements in his party." – Senator Tom Harkin, D-IA
Code: "to pacify these most extreme elements in his party" = to do what conservatives elected him to do

"Regrettably, when he could have united the country through his choice, the President chose to reward one faction of his party and risk dividing the country." – Senator Patrick Leahy, D-VT
Code: "could have united the country" = could have nominated a liberal
Code: "chose to reward one faction of his party" = chose to do what conservatives elected him to do
Code: "risk dividing the country" = risk angering liberals

Nicely illustrated, Bryan. As one of your faithful readers I want to say, keep doing what you're doing.

These talking points will be repeated over and over again until they have swayed the people that can be swayed. Still, they will not have the effect they had 20 years ago. I am so thankful for Limbaugh, Fox news, and the blogosphere.

Any predictions about Alito's confirmation, Bryan?

Chris,
Thanks for your continued support. I think Alito will be confirmed, somewhere around 65-35, but that's just a guess.
