Well, Bryan was certainly determined. He ran in a whole series of elections.   I think a "Left-Wing" wacko is usually someone who is opposing big business and attempting to secure worker's rights. That can't be tolerated! Such people are the devil's spawn. They must be stamped out by any means possible.

As for a religious Wakko, he's usually someone who has some beliefs that you don't, specially if you're not religious. ;-)

It's all in how you look at it.

Then you have Right Wing Wackos...and they are the types who serve as the official Black Sheep on this forum, so they are very, very easy to recognize, right? ;-) I know I don't have to explain how they are identified.

Nothing like a few good steretypes to drive the political dialogue....

What I find really intriguing is not how the South switched alliegiances, because it's obvious why that happened. No, what I find most fascinating is that the industrial northeast has switched alliances too. They used to usually vote Republican, right from Lincoln's time on (except in a few elections where the Republicans got simply massacred). Now the industrial Northeast usually votes Democratic.

What the heck was it that caused that switch?
