Before he was Supreme Court Justice, Earl Warren was three-time Governor of California and an unsuccessful candidate for the Presidency in 1952.

On the eve of the convention, ABC Radio conducted a panel interview with Warren for their Crossfire Radio series, featuring newsmen Martin Agronsky, Elmer Davis, John Edwards and Bryson Rasch.

Warren ducks and dodges a number of questions regarding his electability, but the most interesting one came from Agronsky:

Martin Agronsky: At the National Press Club here Governor, you described the Republican party as having, and Im quoting you a withering right wing. Were you referring to the wing which supports Senator Tafts nomination?

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>Gov. Earl Warren:I wasnt pointing that at anybody, I was stating it as a fact, that there is a group in our party that is extremely reactionary, that would like to turn the clock back to former days if it could do so. . . .

Warren: <u>"You folks know exactly what I mean. You know the people who believe that anything that is done for them represents social progress <span style="color: #990000">but if its done for anybody else it represents socialism.</span>"</u></span></div></div>

Proof positive! They're still the knuckle dragging Neanderthals they've always been.

Warren was a RINO before the term even came into favor. A Republican who in 1946 managed to be nominated no only by his party, but also by the Democrats and the Progressive party.

He is one of the biggest reasons there is no prayer in schools.

The Warren court was the cause of a number of our current problems.
