Still Stupid Since 1954

Hat tip to Sirotablog for uncovering this quotation:

"Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are [a] few other Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man from other areas. Their number is negligible and they are stupid."
- President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 11/8/54

Compared to 1954, they are still trying to abolish social security and they are still stupid. Unfortunately their number is no longer negligible. No wonder Ike's son endorsed John Kerry.
