Progressives’ Valentines give a hint of life when everything’s political.

It seemed to be a mini-fad, this year, for progressives to post fake Valentines on social media that weren’t about love, but about their political positions.  This one, from RI Kids Count captures the distasteful feel with particular gusto:

RIKidsCount: Roses are red
Violets are blue 
Kicking kids off Medicaid is myopic
Can't you see that too?

The tone is hard to miss, with its insinuation of superiority and assumption of bad-intent and/or blindness.  The post even uses a word from the classic vocabulary of pretention, “myopic.”

This is a small thing, to be sure, but something about it really captures the flavor of life under a progressive regime.
