Wow....

I just learned from Conservapedia that the United States formed the world's first political parties.

That Andy Schlafly, he sure is smart! Because of him I know the folly of believing in evolution!

Dare I guess that Andy Schlafly has a mother named Phyllis?

You would be correct.

Ah, yes, the Schlfly Family, America's Sweethearts.

Conservapedia sure is fun reading, isn't?

My previous deputy and I spent a morning there after some ridiculous claim about the Civil War was made on fstdt.com. It's like a train wreck.

I just learned from Conservapedia that the United States formed the world's first political parties.

The British Liberals and Conservatives would be surprised to discover that. By the way, we might have formed the world's first modern political parties (candidates openly running on party affiliation, voting as blocs in the legislature, etc.) but I'm not even sure about that. And anyway, that really begs the question as to what's meant by "modernity" here.

One could even make a case for the Roman Republican Optimates and Populares being "political parties." Though not, of course, in the "modern" sense.

Me calling Andy Schlafly "smart" was heavy sarcasm on my part. I learned from him that to be a true conservative one must also be a devout Christian. I didn't know that, did you?

I knew you were being sarcastic -- I was joining in. Oh, and since I'm a conservative atheist, yes, I obviously failed to get the message :)
