I'm sure this is a paraphrase, but I've heard it said that
- If you're 20 and not a liberal, you have no heart.
- If you're 40 and not a conservative, you have no brain.
It's clear it took a lot of folks a lot longer to grow up in the 1950s and 1960s than was once the case, and that seems to be the case even more in today's society. But if even someone with as much invested in the liberal mindset as John Lennon can eventually grow up, maybe there's at least a little hope for some of our liberal politicians.
