  •  We refer to Jefferson way too often (3+ / 0-)

    He can be used by anyone for anything, thus the lazy reference. We on the left can be just as guilty as those on the right of canonizing those onto whom we wish to project our idealism, deserved or not. Jefferson is our Reagan, a man who said some nice things that he either didn't really mean or understand, and didn't understand people or how things really work here in the real world. And not a little crazy too. Didn't mean to pile on Nonny, but it's Jefferson I have a beef with, not her. So much that is wrong with our history can be laid at his feet, and those of men like him. Like Reagan. Well-spoken madmen.
