26. I'd say it was a process that amped up over a couple of decades...

...so you can find multiple "where it started" points.

E.g., 1952 Republican convention, where conservatives backed Taft and dreamed of reversing the New Deal, only to have northeastern moderates outmaneuver them and succeed in making Ike the nominee and didn't contest the basic New Deal governmental structure. That was a nice start for their regarding moderates as quislings.

1960 election: Geez, they never shut up about how Richard Daley "stole the election for Kennedy," even though if Illinois had gone Republican Kennedy still would have won. To this day they wave it around as a bloody shirt.

1964: Moderate Republicans vote for Johnson instead of Goldwater, reinforcing conservatives' hatred of Rockefeller Republicans.

etc.
