When History Rhymes

In 1960, Mort Sahl summed up the race–fought alongside virtually identical political positions–between Richard Nixon, the 47-year old vice president of President and former General Dwight D. Eisenhower, then 70, and 43-year old John F. Kennedy, the son of the 72-year old one-man political machine Joseph P. Kennedy as “Oh yeah? So’s your old man!”

Tom Maguire writes that the fiercely fought battles between Hillary and Obama boil down to “‘You’re Black’ Versus ‘You’re The Boss’s Wife’“.

As Orrin Judd writes, “In the absence of ideas, they’re stuck fighting over minutiae.”

Update: The American Thinker looks at a much more bitter and modern version of “So’s Your Old Man.”
