Let's see, so Barry Goldwater, the conservative presidential candidate of the mid-60s, has now become a left-wing icon, as Hot Air's Allahpundit reports
? I post about this because it reminded me of a moonbat journalist I once had an ugly spat with who said in a discussion with some other people on a forum he was running about a year ago, "I'm a conservative. A Goldwater conservative."
Ha ha, I'll bet. It's something I'll have to dissect more in depth someday.
I wouldn't be surprised if even Richard Nixon, phony that he was, would also come as quite an icon to today's liberals as well. Watch also the video that Allahpundit provides to see what it's got.
