From her twitter feed:
“sick and tired of liberal judges subverting the will of the people to push their left wing agenda. http://bit.ly/bcEymB“
(1) Mention the lib’ral judges. Check.
(2) Throw out the phrase “left wing agenda”. Check.
(3) Do all of this while throwing “teh gayz” under the bus. Check.
It’s a trifecta of what passes for conservative thought these days.
Of course, Handel was referring to the recent decision to overturn California’s Proposition 8, the measure that banned gay marriage in the state. It only took 1 hour (after the decision) for Karen Handel to, once again, make gay marriage an issue in the election. But for some reason, I keep getting told that Karen is the “victim” in all of this.

[UPDATE 10:36 A.M.] Oh yeah, speaking of truth, might as well give the full disclosure. This “lib’ral” judge that Karen so breathlessly refers to, was appointed by Ronald Reagan. “Liberals” in Congress successfully blocked his confirmation until after Reagan left office. He was finally confirmed after George H.W. Bush renominated him.
