What's a Moderate Democrat?

What's the definition of a moderate Democrat?  I'd never given it much thought before, but after this weekend's health care proceedings in the Senate, I guess the definition is pretty clear.  Mary Landrieu, the " distinguished" Democratic Senator from the "great" state of Louisiana has been described as a moderate in this health care debate.  Apparently, a moderate Democrat is one who sits back and pretends to have serious reservations about this or that aspect of the proposed bill when what they're actually doing is soliciting a bribe.  Then when Harry Reid comes through with $100 million in federal Medicaid subsidies for your state alone, you somehow overcome your previous concerns and vote for the bill along with every other Senate Democrat.  That's what a "moderate Democrat" is.  So I guess a liberal Democrat is one who's too dumb to know as much about extortion as they do down in Louisiana.  What a bunch of suckers those liberal Democrats must be huh?  

How do these people look at themselves in the mirror every morning without puking up their breakfast?
