Here is a fun moment for Conservatives that I first saw on Fox News but I am sharing the same story found on WND. CLUE: Flower that is also a disparaging term for a Liberal (aka Progressive, Leftist, Democrat etc.).
‘JEOPARDY’ CONTESTANT SCORCHES LIBERALS

A news producer for National Public Radio has become a viral sensation after unintentionally scorching liberals during her recent appearance on “Jeopardy.”
Contestant Becky Sullivan, originally from Kansas City, Missouri, provided a hilarious climax during the Oct. 23 episode, when the Final Jeopardy clue in the category of “Flowers” stated:
“The flower pictured here is called this, also a disparaging term for people on the political left.”
While the correct response was “a bleeding heart,” Sullivan wrote “What is a pansy?” The audience erupted in laughter.

Jeopardy contestant loses all her money when she says incorrectly guesses that a flower known for a disparaging word against liberals is a pansy instead of a bleeding heart.
“I think you may have found a way to insult liberals in this country,” host Alex Trebek said before and after Sullivan’s incorrect answer was revealed to the audience, costing her all of her $6,000 she had earned to that point.
Despite the incorrect answer, Trebek did offer some support, saying, “although I do like pansy.”
Views on YouTube of Sullivan’s answer have rocketed to about 700,000 in just three days since the show aired.
Fellow contestant Sean Anderson, a law professor from Champaign, Illinois, answered correctly and became the new champion.
Later on Twitter, Sullivan expounded on her response, saying, “OK here’s the deal with pansy: I actually didn’t know bleeding heart was a flower. I just put the only flower I knew that was also an insult.”
And she divulged some behind-the-scenes secrets of the game show, tweeting, “Insider info: this thirty seconds of footage with the Jeopardy ‘music’ where we’re thinking and writing had to be re-taped. IT’S ALL FAKE.”
This is the second time in recent months the political left has been embarrassed on “Jeopardy.”
A clue on the June 3 broadcast left the geniuses literally speechless.
When shown a photograph of Barack Obama’s attorney general, host Alex Trebek provided the clue:
“Here she is at her Senate confirmation hearing to be our top cop.”
All three contestants had no idea, and none clicked the signaling device to even venture a guess.
When time ran out, Trebek was forced to disclose, “And the lady’s name is Loretta Lynch.”

Why WND is the new gold standard for news.
WND.com is unlike any other independent Internet-based news agency in the world because of its commitment to the highest standards and practices of traditional American journalism—standards and practices WND’s team are familiar with because of their individual and collective years of experiences in newspapers, radio and television at outlets such as CNN, NBC, the Associated Press and major market newspapers and broadcasts outlets.
WND works hard to maintain the new American gold standard for news.
In an Internet environment heavy on commentary, unedited blogging and unverified claims, WND.com stands virtually alone in pioneering the most rigorous standards of fact-checking, multiple and primary sourcing and old-fashioned reporting and editing techniques. No other independent or alternative news source on the Internet boasts this wealth of professional, “mainstream” experience.
The values that form the foundation of WND.com’s news judgments and craft are uniquely American in origin. The birth of the free press in the world came during the American colonial period and was codified in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. The framers of the Constitution saw the free press as an additional check on central government power, something they saw as the pre-eminent danger to self-government and limited constitutional government.
