19. What is so annoying about this type of bullshit.....

is that Limbaugh and others of his ilk REFUSE to admit or acknowledge that political IDEOLOGY has stayed constant, but the identifying labels have not.

No "Southern Democrat" of the 1960's would be caught dead within a mile of the word "Liberal" today.

This bullshit extends all the way to blaming the Democratic party for the genesis of the KKK. To suggest that the founders of that group were liberal progressives is laughable.

The names have changed. NOT the ideology. Roy Moore was NEVER a liberal, full stop.
