Forbes defines "liberal"

Lots of bloggers are puzzled by the fact that Forbes magazine's list of the 25 most influential liberals includes several self-described conservatives, moderates and advocates of George Bush's Iraq war. How did they get on the list?

Here's a summary of Forbes' reasoning:
  • Andrew Sullivan - gay, gay, so very, very gay.
  • Christopher Hitchens - atheist, thinks Sarah Palin is an idiot.
  • Chris Matthews - likes Obama and it's been years since he thought only wackos hated W.
  • Fareed Zakaria - really smart. looks foreign.
  • Tom Friedman - come on, we all know Friedman is a liberal
  • Fred Hiatt - mostly moderate and the left hates him, but Obama will probably read his column.
