RINOs Then and Now

And speaking of flashbacks, Brent Bozell writes tonight:

The Republican convention was delayed by a day on Monday. It’s not a problem: the national media’s pre-convention spin was timed perfectly, almost as if it was on automatic pilot. In Monday’s New York Times, longtime political writer Adam Nagourney regurgitated the same old, tired political spin that the Republican Party is too conservative and exclusionary on “social issues,” and that their divisive stands will hurt them with “mainstream” voters.

1976. 1980. 1984. 1988. 1992. 1996. 2000. 2004. 2008. Will they ever stop saying this?

MSNBC is working extra hard to keep the old narrative going: “MSNBC cuts every speech made by a minority from RNC speech coverage” tonight.  As I said late last night, after Chris Matthews’ spittle-flecked meltdown, GE: It brings bad racialism to life.
