Plus ca change, part N+1

By Owen Paine on Friday October 26, 2007 01:06 PM

While reading some stuff by I F Stone* about the early cold war, I came across this bit on his support for the Wallace third-party campaign of '48:
I know I'm a dupe or worse... but I don't think I'm as big a dupe as those who are going to vote for Truman and the bipartisan cold war, and expect to get peace, housing, and better prices....
Today we'd just need to change the list to peace, health, and higher wages.

Oh and of course we'd also need to substitute our un-Dear Leader mother Clinton for that snap-snip-and-roll cocker spaniel from the Kansas City machine.


*The Truman Era, 1945-1952, p. 67.
