Legal technicalities
Constitutional protections and other fundamental human rights
Legitimate rape
Not consensual statutory rape, date rape, or Secular Humanist sluts saying, "No! No! A Thousand Times No!" when they mean "Yes! Oh, yes! Do it to me!" as you can tell if they get pregnant, because in real rape, according to Right-Wing Urban Legend-based science, the woman's body prevents conception, and therefore the women must be denied an abortion.—Missouri Rep. Todd Akins, in his campaign for the US Senate seat held by Democrat Claire McCaskill. See also Personhood.
Let me be clear and direct
Let me obfuscate and cherry-pick the data—AHIP
Let me be honest
Let my Nay be Nay, and my Yea also be Nay, and especially my "Let me help you with that".—Eric Cantor, Orrin Hatch, Bart Stupak, the entire Republican Party of No, the entire Mad Tea Party movement, the Congressional Blue Dogs.
Liberal
Commie N*****-lover. Also,
  • Everybody on the old Republican Heroes pages, long since taken down, from Abraham Lincoln to Ronald Reagan
  • Pro-choice, anti-Vietnam war Ayn Rand, who knew that big business can be the biggest enemy of big business
  • George W. Bush, for admitting the reality of Global Warming
  • George H. W. Bush, for raising taxes
  • Ronald Reagan, who signed the Convention Against Torture in 1988, during a period of much higher terrorist activity, and also insisted on applying the rule of law to them as common criminals. Thanks to Glenn Greenwald for pointing this out at Salon.com. Reagan also took a stand against banning openly gay teachers from public high schools in California, and tried to make a deal with Gorbachev to get rid of all US and Soviet nuclear weapons. Most relevant today, Reagan said, "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy. [...] Do you think the millionaire ought to pay more in taxes than the bus driver or less?"
  • Barry Goldwater, the anti-Christian-Right supporter of gays in the military
  • Richard M. Nixon, the tree-hugging (EPA), Socialist (Negative income tax to replace Welfare), Peacenik (ended Vietnam War) appeaser (trip to China)
  • Dwight Eisenhower, the tax-and-spend Interstate Highway-building tyrant who sent troops to Alabama to enforce school desegregation.
  • Milton Friedman, but only during his brief Socialist delusion, when he thought that a Negative Income Tax to replace Welfare was a Conservative idea.
  • Anti-Socialist F. A. Hayek, author of The Road to Serfdom and Why I am Not a Conservative—"Experience has shown that separate never is equal and cannot be equal."
  • Edmund "Tax and Spend" Burke, who wrote "Parsimony is not economy. Expense, and great expense, may be necessary for true economy."
