On Branding and Self-Ghettoization | Main | Okay Here's Some Newsy Stuff Instead of My Noodling and Doodling: Rick Perry Calls Out Romney and McCain as Not Real Conservatives

Is the C-Word Now a Bad Word?

I was wondering about this, having written about running from the c-word ("conservative") like liberals do. (Although they hide from it less now-- a sign, perhaps, they're on the upswing, or at least believe they are.)

This got me to wondering why I would possibly suggest that we run from the c-word. Is it that I, unbeknownst to myself, now think the term is unpopular, almost as unpopular as "liberal" was from 1983-1991?

I'm not sure, but I do have suspicions that might be the case.
