I’ve often wondered why Liberals will refer to themselves as an “unabashed” or “self-admitted” liberal. On Friday night, I got a glimpse.

My wife and I went out to dinner with three couples to Japonais - (If you love sushi and haven’t been, I highly recommend you check it out.)

Two of the couples are good friends. We’d never met the third couple before, but were enjoying great conversation and laughs. Towards the end of the evening, however, the conversation turned to politics and among our new friends, the guy started spewing how much he hated the President.

He told a story of an experience he had before he moved to Winnetka. It seems President Bush was in his hometown and would be making an appearance very near his home. A secret service team rang his doorbell and asked if they could perch an agent on his roof. My friend laughed at them and told them to get the hell out of his house. Later, as they saw the President appear near his home, he took the opportunity to flip his middle finger at our Commander-in Chief. Shamefully, he was with his young daughter to whom he had to lie and tell her he was letting the President know he was “Number 1”.

Unabashed? Hardly seems to fit.
