Neocons claimed America was an “ideological nation” a “creedal nation,” dedicated to the proposition that “all men are created equal.” Expropriating the biblical mandate, “Go forth and teach all nations!” they divinized democracy and made the […]

By James B. Pinkerton at Breitbart “Buchanan tells the story well, and he bolsters his tale with copious evidence from those days—not just his first-hand memories as a major participant in the campaign, but also abundant news clips and archival campaign memos.
