The Democratic machine has a long history of this. The party of slavery, Jim Crow, KKK, housing projects, welfare, illegal immigration literally spends billions buying lies into "truths" such as they are: the party of the working man, friend to the minorities, that they are compassionate , that they "care", and that Repubs are "mean spirited" etc. They LOVE people like Hillary and Nancy and despise people like Sarah. And somehow...it works so they keep doing it. CHANGE. Right out of the JFK playbook. Clinton used it, Obama used it, and I doubt the Dems have had an original thought in 50 years.
