like frogs in warm water

From a speech given by Ezra Taft Benson in 1966:

(reporting on a conversation he had with Nikita Khrushchev)

"...As we talked face to face he indicated that my grandchildren would live under communism. After assuring him that I expected to do all in my power to assure that his and all other grandchildren would live under freedom he arrogantly declared in substance, You Americans are so gullible. No you won't accept communism outright but we'll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won't have to fight you. We'll so weaken your economy until you fall like overripe fruit into our hands."

I will make room on the floor for your jaw... right beside mine.

AYY! This makes me sick and sad. Thanks for posting. I need to go read Jonah Goldberg's LIberal Fascism.

Didn't work for Russia. Won't work for us either. Tea, anyone?
