Several weeks ago, my husband was watching public television, and I wandered in to see that Emma Goldman was being canonized. According to the "documentary", Emma was just a tireless crusader for the underdog. She is quoted as saying:

Republicans will probably charge this to their child's credit card . . .
The above sentiment came from the Angry Liberal Store, which includes:
I could go on, but check out the store for yourself.
