George Wallace was a Republican apparently. One is left with the question, are modern journalists mendacious, stupid, or utterly historically ignorant? Why not all three, some may respond. It does make it mordantly amusing to be lectured about not knowing history by a journalist.

Well, Republican is just a synonym for bad or evil, so in that sense, Wallace was a Republican. Just like certain people we know think that free-market is a synonym for evil.

Well, when a journalist uses a word, it means whatever the journalist wants it to mean, neither more nor less. It is a question of who is to be the master.
