We might think that Republicans started being world-class asshats the days Barack and Michelle moved into the White House. But they've been making the world unpleasant since your Grandparents were little 'uns. Way back in 1939, with the US still trying to work its way out of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt heeded the request of retailers, and moved Thanksgiving up a week (from the fifth Thursday in November to the fourth) to lengthen the Holiday shopping season. Of course, Republicans reacted as you might expect. I'm quite certain that seventy five years from now, when most of us are dead and buried, our grandchildren will find the "outrage" of Ted Cruz and John Boehner just as comical and pathetic.
