It’s axiomatic that conservatives suddenly become liberals when the business of governing touches upon them and theirs.
We saw this with Sandra Day O’Connor, where her reputation for moderation was better described by narcissism: If she had been effected by it, whether it be sexism or reproductive rights, she was suddenly moderate.
About people who weren’t her, and did not look like her or live a life like her, it’s back to conservatism.
And now we see Meghan McCain doing the same thing.
After having a baby, she realizes that there needs to be some sort of regulation mandating paid maternity leave.
Socialism for me, and capitalism for thee.
If you are morally incapable of putting yourself in someone else’s shoes unless it happened to you, you might be a conservative.
