26. Well, if I were to use the same 'scale' as your post does....
Edited on Tue Dec-22-09 11:18 PM by Spazito
it would mean those who support Ms. Hamsher are anti-women's rights, pro-republican, pro-Grover Norquist point of view given Ms. Hamsher has aligned herself with the likes of Phyllis Schafaly and Grover Norquist.

Phyllis Schlafly : Schlafly continues to exert some influence within the Republican Party. She played a key role in writing some socially conservative language in the Republican National Convention's platform, most recently in 2004.

However, Schlafly has expressed dissatisfaction with the modern GOP. Though she has not been actively involved in the neoconservative/paleoconservative schism, her positions on many issues resemble those of a paleoconservative. Like Patrick J. Buchanan.

Grover Norquist: "I don't want to abolish government. I simply want to reduce it to the size where I can drag it into the bathroom and drown it in the bathtub." Norquist favors the elimination of numerous federal organizations including the Internal Revenue Service, the Food and Drug Administration, Education Department and the National Endowment for the Arts.

I prefer not to use the same 'scales' your post seems to use as I don't believe those who, imo, mistakenly feel they must defend Ms. Hamsher are anti-womens' rights and pro-paleoconservative views.

Edited to correct spelling error and add my opinion re 'scales' used.
