Michael Tomasky of The Daily Beast: The American Right's Habit of Being Wrong

"When has the American right ever--ever--been on the right side of history?

The answer is almost never.  Indeed, history is an unfolding, and more or less constant, vindication of the people who were thinking ahead, who weren't happy with things the way they were and saw they had to change, and who have been on the side of personal liberation and de-concentration of political power. Those people are virtually by definition liberals and reformers and radicals."
