The Return of the Copperheads

"The president is an idiot, who is leading us into a disasterous war we cannot win."

Sound familiar? It is what the Democrats say today. It's what they said about Vietnam (after Nixon took over). It's also what they said about Abe Lincoln and the Civil War.

It took a generation for the Democrats to live down the Copperhead label they earned during the Civil War.

It will take at least another generation for them to live it down this time, when not only the Union, but our survival is at stake.
