"A number of political commenters have compared the current Republican contestants unfavorably with Barry Goldwater. The current crop, we are told, are religious nutcases, or possibly pretending to be. Goldwater, on the other hand, was an intelligent and reasonable man, even if not on the right side of every issue. I have been reading my parents' autobiography, and recently got to the Goldwater campaign. Their description fits my memory. What we were being told then ... was that he was a dangerous madman."
