4/10- AS RECENTLY AS 1950 THEY WEREN'T CALLED "LIBERALS" AND "CONSERVATIVES". THEY WERE "NORMALS" AND "FREAKS"!
Who invented the potato chip? You probably thought it was always there. Not at all. A chef at Saratoga Springs, N. Y. in the 1800s had a fussy customer who kept sending his meal back because the potatoes were sliced too thick. Finally, chef George Crum thought "I'll fix him!" and sliced it so thin it was just a chip! The customer liked it, as did hundreds of millions of others! You may have thought "conservatism" was always there, too. Again, not at all. Sara and Barry welcome DAVID FRISK, biographer of William Rusher, the true father of what we call "political conservatism", who spotlights his new biography, "If Not Us, Who? William Rusher, National Review and the Conservative Movement."
