“Every man that tried to destroy this nation was a Democrat. Every enemy this great republic has had for twenty years has been a Democrat… Every man that denied to the Union prisoners even the worm-eaten crust of famine, and when some poor, emaciated Union patriot, driven to insanity by famine, saw in an insane dream the face of his mother, and she beckoned him and he followed, hoping to press her lips once again against his fevered face, and when he stepped one step beyond the dead line the wretch that put the bullet through his loving throbbing heart was and is a Democrat.”
Well, duh. And poor Bob Dole got in trouble for his line about “Democrat wars.”
