The Houston Chronicle reports on the Senate vote to confirm Ben Bernanke:

Senators from opposite ends of the spectrum formed alliances. After Sanders, who calls himself a socialist, finished denouncing Bernanke, Sen. Jeff Sessions, a conservative Republican from Alabama, rose to do the same.

WTF, Chronicle? Since when are you qualified to decide who is a real socialist and who is a true conservative? Oh, pardon me, it's so obvious that Sessions is a conservative: he has supported the invasion and occupation of Iraq from the get-go, and voted in favor of the Federal Marriage Amendment, an extraordinary intervention in a matter traditionally left to the states.
