Recently, Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley said, “All lives matter,” and a liberal crowd responded with derision and boos. He promptly issued a grovelling apology. I didn’t think it was possible for a man to walk upright without a spine but apparently he can.
Imagine John Kennedy or Ronald Reagan in a similar situation. They likely would have said, “If you boo that idea, frankly, I don’t want your votes.”
