Moe Tucker Speaks Out ... Against Obama

Maureen "Moe" Tucker was the drummer of an influential band in the 1960's called The Velvet Underground.  She voted Democrat all of her life until Barack Obama.  This article explains why.  In the companion piece that is linked at the bottom, there's an interview of her after she appeared at a Tea Party.  Here's one beautiful segment:

Many people [on the Left] seem upset or outraged.

I'm stunned that so many people who call themselves liberal yet are completely intolerant. I thought liberals loved everyone: the poor, the immigrant, the gays, the handicapped, the minorities, dogs, cats, all eye colors, all hair colors! Peace, love, bull! Curious they have no tolerance whatsoever for anyone who doesn't think exactly as they do. You disagree and you're immediately called a fool, a Nazi, a racist. That's pretty f'd up!! I would never judge someone based on their political views. Their honesty, integrity, kindness to others, generosity? Yes. Politics? No!
