Rum, Romanism, and Rebellion

That twit Jeff Greenfield mentioned this on CNN and I think it's a good slogan for the Democratic Party. From the annals of history:

... But it wasn't until we read Summers exhaustive discussion of the campaign of 1884 that we learn that one Dr. Samuel D. Burchard, addressing a gathering of the Religious Bureau of the Republican National Committee, a week before the general election, stated,

We are Republicans, and don't propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism, and rebellion. We are loyal to our flag.


Being that a Rethug was talking about us anyway ...
