"Confessions of a Republican"

Is the 2016 presidential race really so different from others in America's political past, or does it just feel that way because we're living it now, and because we tend to remember the past on more idyllic terms?

Here's an old long-form ad the LBJ camp used in its campaign to undermine Barry Goldwater in 1964. Sounds a lot like the GOPe spin we've heard unleashed on Donald Trump this go-round.

Was Goldwater really so scary, or was Lyndon Johnson and his team just good at scaring voters?
