The AARP: Special Interest Group *and* Liberal Front

Professor Bainbridge makes a good observation on the AARP as a liberal front, rather than just another special-interest group:
...just one more liberal special interest group, albeit a particularly well [camouflaged] and effective one (using those discounts to pull in seniors who probably vote red). The latest example: We learn from an Eleanor Clift column (of all things) that the AARP quietly has joined up with the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights to oppose President Bush's judicial nominees. So why would a loyal (more or less) Republican like me join one of the worst of those left-liberal special interest organizations of which the Democrat Party is a wholly-owned subsidiary?
