I'm, Uh, Economically Conservative But, Uh, Socially Liberal

No one who has ever said this is actually socially liberal, other than in a 'let me watch porn and Tipper Gore annoyed me with the music lyrics stuff' sense.

All those people were extremely squishy, at best, on the two major "socially liberal" policy issues - abortion and gay rights - of the last few decades.

The kind of people who, if they had columns, would insist that there was some Grand Compromise on offer on abortion that was only being stopped by "radical feminists." No conservatives ever offered such a compromise, but they were sure!
