Named for conservative Democratic Joe Lieberman, Lieberals are overly PC Democrats who water down their liberal tendencies in order to do what's best for children.
Lieberals are easily distinguished from Yuppie
s because instead of basing their conservative leanings on fiscal concerns, they shape their worldview on what's best for children. Many Lieberals have kids of their own and use this child filter to formulate their decisions on everything from First Amendment issues to taxes to Survivor. All Lieberals suspiciously over-utilize the word "sensible" and think there is no greater sin than spanking a child.
Signs you're a Lieberal:
--When hot under the collar, you've been known to refer to someone as a jerk.
--You're active in the church or synagogue, but wish they would use gender neutral pronouns when reading from the religious texts.
--When making a fist, you place your thumb on top of your index finger.
