I honestly don't think that changing a word, or adding a word is the real problem, and pretending it is minimizes the real issue. What people like Maddow do is insert "intent" into the commentary made by conservatives. And the "intent" is always malevolent which is one of the reasons we can't talk across the divide between liberals and conservatives. The liberals can't, or won't, accept that a desire for individual liberty is a positive thing - it really does seem to come down to the hive mentality versus the desire for individual liberty and responsibility. For the liberals who read this and want to jump on that - claiming that conservatives are heartless - it means no such thing. For a conservative, charity is a personal thing. We give, a lot, to those charities we believe do the most good. We are not heartless, or racist, or greedy - something people like Maddow refuse to believe. I wonder if her inability to understand that is because she simply can't understand that people can value liberty AND compassion at the same time. Instead of picking at words, Ms Coulter should make a better argument for the motives underneath the selective vocabulary.

Actually, Dr. Sowell has been covering that story for years, as have many conservative journalists and opinion writers. Sadly there are few who listen.
I used to watch The Five. I don't anymore. I'm tired of political talking points, and that is all The Five is. Fox touts itself as fair and balanced. But fair and balanced talking points isn't what I want. Perhaps Fox could do us all a favor by putting on fair and intelligent instead. Give us one show that has people who can actually express and defend the basic concepts underlying conservative and progressive thought. Maybe give us the kind of debate show that William Buckley used to run - Firing Line. Or is Fox, like all the other "news" networks, really convinced that the only people they need to appeal to are those who only want to hear what they believe.
Jeff3526 - you nailed it. Exactly.
And Jeanne Shaheen will vote with them 99% of the time - so which is better? I'll take Scott Brown any day of the week over Shaheen.

No, that was Hank Johnson - another paragon of idiocy and corruption.
