3. Heard a guy defending Republicans on WNYC, New York's public radio station...
He called in to argue with George McGovern that the Republicans were not just the party of the elite. I was just shaking my head at his lack of perception.

How anyone who depends on SS and Medicare can claim to be a Republican is beyond me.
