Quote of the Week - Deja Vu Division

"[T]here is a group in our party that is extremely reactionary, that would like to turn the clock back to former days if it could do so...You know the people who believe that anything that is done for them represents social progress but if it's done for anybody else it represents socialism." - Earl Warren, then-Governor of California, July 2, 1952, on the eve of the 1952 Republican convention, where he was a candidate for president. The comment was in response to a question from a panel on the ABC Radio show "Crossfire." Hmmm... Tea Party? Mama Fizzly? "I See Commies" Bachmann? Boo Hoo Beck? The Koch Brothers? Are bells ringing? BTW, we note there are no Earl Warrens speaking up in today's Rethug/ New Confederate Party. (h/t Crooks and Liars)
