Rabinowitz in Wsj

by Steven F. Hayward

Dorothy Rabinowitz has a splendid meditation on the Online Wall Street Journal today about how the Democrats debate resemble the weirdness of the “San Francisco Democrats” of 1984.

Which reminds me of a story. I attended the 1984 Dem convention in SF as a reporter, and as I watched the–shall we say “colorful”–gay parade go down Market Street the day the convention opened, I ran across an old YAF activist who quipped: “In 1972, we paid people to do this to McGovern. Now they’re doing it for us.”
