Whether we forget or remember the past, sometimes we seem doomed to repeat it. Certainly with all the candidates, the analogies to historic times flow freely. The two big analogies, of course, are World War II and the Vietnam War, depending on whether voters view Islamists or fellow Americans as the enemy.
There are other historic times, though, that are worthy of revisiting. Watch this Betty Boop video and tell me if it doesn’t seem eerily reminiscent of much of the Democratic platform, with Betty promising to cure all ills and flatten out wealth, two sentiments accompanied by meaningless (but, since this is Betty Boop, jazzy) platitudes.
