BREAKING: Conservatives Don't Care For Liberals!

Is the Washington Post serious with this? Do they think it qualifies as news?

To some staunch conservatives watching President Bush relinquish the reins of power to President-elect Barack Obama, a few too many ardent liberals are now crashing the gates.

Some well-known Democratic activists are advising Obama on how to steer federal agencies, including a few whom conservative Republicans fought hard to keep out of power in the Clinton administration. They include Roberta Achtenberg, a gay activist whose confirmation as an assistant housing secretary was famously held up by then-Sen. Jesse Helms (N.C.), and Bill Lann Lee, who was hotly opposed by foes of affirmative action and temporarily blocked from the government's top civil rights job.

Conservatives fear that some of these Obama transition advisers are too far left on the political spectrum and are a sign of radical policies to come.

I think I figured out that conservatives would consider liberals too liberal sometime in the 2nd grade. I guess that's the reading level of the WaPo these days.

The entire article is one long, meaningless example of working the refs. As for those conservative gripers, what's the phrase I'm looking for?... oh yeah, ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
