I for one have been brainwashed and hoodwinked.
A lot of this is news to me.
It's a shame that party stereotypes continue to trump reality.

Sarah - I read this link through Instapundit

Maybe someone should ask the Boston Globe to CORRECT the record.

This by far goes farther than simply 'seared, seared in me' - it even has FAKE details!

I learned a lot from it. Oh, and thank you. Another part, though, was connecting dots I already knew about, and some things that should have been obvious, I mean I knew that the Republicans opposed slavery and that the Democrats supported it, but for some reason it never occurred to me that of course the first black government officials and politicians would have been Republicans.

Great link, and thank you.

I knew quite a lot of these things. It's because the Democrats have always (with the willing help of the news media) been able to use the media very artfully. They are masters at it.

On the Republican side - Reagan is about the only one who has ever understood how the media works and how to do end runs around them. That's really very frustrating from my point of view. I figured someone must have learned something from Reagan, but once he was gone... it was business as usual for them. *sigh*
