A shift in presidential tense

(Continued)

Since Nixon, every electoral map shows that the ideological shift since Lincoln is complete and secure.

Most of them resemble inversions of 150-year-old maps used during what Lincoln himself called “a war upon the rights of all working people,” a description that today nails Republican state house agendas from Maine to Arizona, from Wisconsin to Florida.

What’s that old saying about history? Just because the deception didn’t work last year doesn’t mean it won’t work next.

And you know it’s coming soon to an election near you.
