    so I prefer vultures who have a negative (undeserved) image.

    The connotations of labels are so often rich in irony.
    Just think of Newt accusing Romney of being a "Massachusetts Moderate."
    By most non-deranged people's standards, that's not really an insult (even for a strong progressive like me, I don't blanch at the word "moderate,") but by crazy tea-party standards, it's an insult equivalent to "Socialist" -- yet another label with an (undeserved) negative connotation.

    If, in our efforts to win, we become as dishonest as our opponents on the right, we don't deserve to triumph.
