Throwing Mud On The Wall

THROWING MUD ON THE WALL....The ability of conservatives to reach back through the mists of time and dig up weird stuff to explain why liberals are really to blame for some manifest failure of conservatism (or, alternatively, why conservatism is really responsible for some ostensibly liberal success) has long filled me with awe. Seriously. They're really good at this. Every piece of right-wing crankery in the world eventually has its day this way.

Anyway, via Ezra, Robert Gordon, has the latest example of this, and it even includes some bonus race-baiting. Good stuff.
