(Democrats in Drag: Third Way Fall From Grace, Part 5) A half-century ago, in a classic exchange between two men on opposite ends of the moral and political spectrum, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev bragged to American patriot and Secretary of Agriculture Ezra Taft Benson: "Your grandchildren will live under communism!" To which Secretary Benson enthusiastically replied: "If I have it my way, your grandchildren will live free!" Khrushchev, undeterred, fired back: "Oh, you Americans! You are so gullible! We'll spoon-feed you socialism until you're communists and don't even know it. We'll never have to fire a shot!"
