I think the day is rapidly approaching when Kirsten can no longer call herself a Democrat or a lib. Trouble is, then she will lose her gig at Fox because she will just be one of ‘them’.
Cognitive dissonance can be painful to watch.
She’s pure legal when it comes to the NRA but she appears fairly sane on some issues!!
One day she will come on with a huge "VOTE 4 Palin" Button and still insist she is a Democrat, because as you said, once she is no longer a Liberal she ceases to be an opposing force to us.
Just like Powell who says he is a Republican only because once he switches over to Democrat he will be ignored because they have 1498566 Liberal Black Democrats.
Thus she will just be another one of our Conservative/Libertarian Hotties, Not like that is a bad thing :)
