First, a disclosure: I’m a liberal. Second, I’m not embarrassed, as Ruth Ann Dailey suggests in her July 28 column “It’s No Summer of Love for the Flustered Left.” I would, however, be embarrassed if I thought health care was only for people who had insurance or if I thought that the minimum wage was where it should be because it’s good for small business. Heck, with that logic perhaps she would like to lower the minimum wage and really help stimulate the economy.
I would also be embarrassed if I were a woman and a bunch of old men on the Supreme Court voted on what I’m allowed to do with my uterus. The Republican Party is so out of touch that without gerrymandering and trying to suppress voters through voter ID laws, the GOP would not have a chance to win an election in the near future. I would also be embarrassed if my political party were that afraid of the future.
