Even Profiles Of Conservatives Have To Be "Moderate" For Fish Wrapper

I've mentioned a few times that I wonder if the Fish Wrapper would ever do a profile of a conservative, since it seems that they only profile liberal loonies like Jules Boykoff. Well, they finally managed to do it, but of course, it was about Vicki Berger, a "moderate" Republican. Translation: a Republican who is almost a Democrat. You can tell where the piece is going right from the beginning.

SALEM -- It's not every day that Oregon's Democratic governor personally thanks a Republican legislator for following the courage of her convictions.

Apparently it's only a good thing for Teddy when your convictions are for socialism and higher taxes.
