8. Three notches left of center
But the MSM is determined to paint the real center 4 notches to the right of center, so way left of where the MSM claims people are.

Thats why "change" was a good PR tactic in the last election.

If people were as far right as the MSM claims McCain would have won a landslide.

On a side note, the Democrats (and Obama too) will be throwing away a left of center majority unless they get their shit together and push real progressive bills into law.
