Bagger's quoting Goldwater, "Extremism in Defense of Liberty is no Vice"
Just heard on the radio that that's the new rallying cry of the baggers...

They really like to pick and choose their icons... the guy who got BLOWN OUT by LBJ and ended up sounding like a progressive as he got older... lol.

This could get ugly people...

1. You mean uglier......
cause they've been ugly as sin since day one...since they lost the 08 election,
and decided to disguise themselves as something other than what they are;
Bush voters who love war and hate people, the constitution, and rule of law!

2. Hey teabaggers! Goldwater also supported gays in the military, saying
"you don't have to be straight, just shoot straight."

9. Heard it on the radio or saw it at home, on freerepublic.com?
The current Republican Party would make Goldwater, even in 1964, puke his guts out. They have gone (Thank you, Ronnie Raygun!) SO FAR to the right that they're on another plane of existence altogether, part of the reason they're getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller ...
