1963: G.O.P. clergyman delivers his famous “I have a dream” speech:“It should come as no surprise that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was a Republican.”—Human Events blog

He was a Republican.

1964: Republicans fight for the Civil Rights Act:“We were the people who passed the civil-rights bills back in the sixties without very much help from our colleagues across the aisle.”—Representative Virginia Foxx

Sounds about right.

1967: John Kerry likely shoots himself in the leg in order to score a Purple Heart medal:“There are legitimate questions about whether or not… it was a self-inflicted wound.”—Michelle Malkin

Facts a bit wrong but based on true accusations by those that served with him.

2006: W.M.D. discovered:“We have found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.”—Rick Santorum

We did, at least 500 of them.

2010: Drug dealers invade America:“Mexican drug cartels have seized control of at least two American ranches inside the U.S. territory near Laredo, Texas.”—Kimberly Dvorak

Eight months ago this reporter broke a story, based on reliable sources, that two Texas ranch owners were evicted from their ranches by the Mexican Zetas drug cartel. The July 24 Zeta report was finally confirmed 16 days later by a police blotter and the Texas Attorney General, after being largely dismissed as a hoax by the main-stream media.

And the rank and file tea party parrot will
screach about how the 'liberal' media is
biased, because it is accurate in pointing
our how sureal a version of history they believe in.
it shows how impervious to reality some have become

It could be worse, the sheer violence of left wingers is amazing.

The 2010 Violent crime rate per 100,000 residents

Detroit, MI-1887
St Louis,MO -1747-
Oakland,CA -1529-
Baltimore,MD-1456-
Stockton,CA-1381-
Buffalo,NY -1357-
Cleveland,OH-1295-
Washington,D.C.-1241
Philadelphia,PA-1189-
Kansas City,MO-1140-


All ten cities have a violent crime rate over twice the national average (404 per 100,000)
Eight cities had a violent crime rate over three times the national average.
Two had a violent crime rate over four times the national average.
What did they all have in common?

The majority of voters in all twelve cities vote for Barack Obama in 2008.
