Maybe Jefferson Was No Democrat

The Insults Unpunished blog headlinines a quotation from Thomas Jefferson I’ve never seen before: “I think it is in our interest to punish the first insult; because an insult unpunished is the parent of many others.”

Bet no one will include that quote any any speeches at one of the many annual Jefferson Day Dinners sponsored by local Democrat parties this year. In fact, there are a lot of Jefferson quotes no modern day Democrat would ever utter.
