Republicans evolve over time. In images.

Mitch McConnell.

Gipper.

Ike.

I remember Ike. His presidency was generally middle-of-the-road like Clinton's and Obama's. Each with unexceptional vice presidents, although two went on to win presidential elections. Ike tolerated Joe McCarthy, for a time. Ike never had to tolerate Fox. Ike would not have. As much about not suffering fools as policy. As I understand the story, Ike appointed Earl Warren knowing what he was getting, but keeping a promise. Keeping the theme Republican --

Earl Warren.

Is there a gulf between Earl Warren and Mitch McConnell? Is the Pope Catholic?

UPDATE: bonus
