There they were -- John, Jane, Josie and Jack -- standing with the president and before the entire country. The nominee was in a sober suit with the expected white shirt and red tie. His wife and children stood before the cameras, groomed and glossy in pastel hues -- like a trio of Easter eggs, a handful of Jelly Bellies, three little Necco wafers.

Well, they are dressed kind of funny.
It's like they're stuck in the past.
"Liberal" is a buzz word that Conservatives have overrused to the point of sillyness.
Do you really think this qualifies as front-page material for a national newspaper such as the Washington Post?
The way I read the punchline, the author is actually saying something very positive about what he/she saw
