It’s all a Plot by George Bush

While Duncan Black is not busy bashing people for potentially being homosexual, he must be smoking the crack pipe.

Oh jumping jeebus. Check out the White House presidential history page. They’ve taken to calling Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and John Quincy Adams “Republicans” because, you know, they were members of the Democratic-Republican party, so therefore they’re Republicans.

I do need a drink.

Perhaps Ducan could put down the bottle and pick up a book once in a while.

Jefferson’s Second Revolution :

The Election Crisis of 1800 and the Triumph of Republicanism

From Publishers Weekly
…The choices in 1800 election could not have been starker: Federalist Adams championed the need for a strong central government that would forge an image of honor and national unity. The Republican Jefferson prized the rights of individuals to criticize their government and viewed the Federalist vision as a dangerous slide into monarchy and a reversal of the Revolution’s ideals….

Product Description:
The election of 1800 was a revolution in the modern sense of a radical new beginning, but it was also a revolution in the sense of a return to the point of origin, to the principles of 1776. Federalist incumbent John Adams, and the elitism he represented, faced Republican Thomas Jefferson…

(that’s a good book BTW)

Saving that, a good google search would have told him that Jefferson (et al) called themselves Republicans.

He could have learned 10th grade history… but it’s more fun to blame everything on a secret Bush Neo-Con Plot.
