At the heart of the liberal crack-up, which I first diagnosed in 1984, is the impulse to politicize everything from food to sex to happenstance -- and to moralize. The liberal of the liberal crack-up is a free-floating moralizer.
That's exactly it. For all people say that conservatives want to "impose their moral values" on the rest of us, the lefty is far more predisposed that way. There is no issue--even the weather--to which a liberal cannot attach a desperate moral imperative.
