Even a man who is pure in heart
and says his prayers by night
may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms
and the autumn moon is bright.
—”The Wolf Man” (1941)

Even Ivory soap is no more than 99 and 44/100% pure, so what are the holier-than-thou adherents to the religion of liberalism supposed to do? No one is without sin — not even the left’s patron saint, Barack Obama, who has said things when the mic was live that he wishes he hadn’t.
This boils down to a major “purity” problem for liberals. By this I mean that everyone who follows lockstep in the teachings of Saul Alinksy and his disciples is automatically 100% good, and anyone who doesn’t is 100% evil. There are no shades or gradations, no exceptions.
Wherein lies the problem. This two-state solution seldom plays out to the left’s satisfaction. We saw this in 2012, in the case of George Zimmerman, who turned out not to be white nor demonstrably racist in the eyes of the FBI. We saw it again just this past week in the wholesale condemnation of rancher Cliven Bundy, who it now appears has a higher opinion of blacks than Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton do of Jews.
