    My own favorite Republican convention memory dates to 1968 (unless it was 1964), when networks broadcast the whole thing, live — and NY Governor Nelson Rockefeller appeared near the podium before the session came to order, flashing his famous megawatt grin at somebody off-camera, while giving them the finger. They don’t make ‘em like that anymore, in any sense.

    The NYT’s comparison of the 1980 and 2012 GOP platforms is also quite interesting: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/29/us/politics/republican-platform-takes-turn-to-right.html . Unfortunately, they don’t make ‘em like that anymore, either.
