If you truly want insight into the conservative mind - and evidence they were the Democrats of yore - just listen to the spin they put on America's racial history today. I did, and they sure don't sound like the party of Lincoln:
"Jim Crow is ancient history. The Fox News position on Obama’s remarks—that Christianity’s sins ended many centuries ago—has a bit of trouble with Christian defenses of slavery and segregation. No problem: Just backdate the falsifying evidence. According to Rush Limbaugh, 'Jim Crow’s not around today. A thousand years ago, yeah. But not today.' Huckabee chides Obama for talking 'as if it was Christians who were responsible for racism in America.'”
Now why would they be so disingenuous,...?
