Values Voters

That was quite an amazing bit of branding, parroted on NPR daily for year. "Values Voters" were Republicans who hate gay people and abortion, and we had to respect their deeply held beliefs. People who were "pro-gay rights" or "anti-war" had no values whatsoever!

Trump and the latest Falwell scandal did help to destroy the dominance of that rhetoric, which lasted for years. Had quite a good run!
