Luck of the Draw

As one might imagine, Democrat bashing has been all the rage on the Anyone BUT Obama Facebook page since the group signed on in 2011.
The conservative cyber-hangout aggregates any and all streams of attack leveled against President Barack Obama, drawing from sources as varied as conspiracy-fomenting Newsmax to sardonic commentator Dennis Miller.
And while it’s crystal clear who the group “likes” — it has given the virtual thumbs up to the entire crop of since-discarded Republican presidential hopefuls, purported vice presidential frontrunners Sen. Marco Rubio (Fla.) and N.J. Gov. Chris Christie, as well as House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (Va.) — it’s less obvious who, and more importantly why, others have landed on its hate list.
Case in point: A recent infographic denouncing “liberal idiots” prominently features the grimacing mugs of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and retiring Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.):

Granted, the men are well-known. And all appear to be dyed-in-the-wool lefties.
But NONE of them placed in the latest, inside-the-Beltway superlatives compiled from Congressional voting records.
So, what makes these three gents the poster boys for liberal idiocy above all others?
No clue. (We’re obviously too dumb to connect the dots.)
