When News Magazines Don't Quite Get It

I'm not posting much because I'm funneling my writing energies into catching up on NaNoWriMo, but this is too much to let pass without comment.  Time Magazine in its November 24th issue has an article called "The New Liberal Order" which starts out (with pictures) comparing Chicago's Grant Park in 1968 vs. 2008.   Then they say:

"Flash forward to the evening of Nov. 4, and you can see why liberalism has sprung back to life.  Ideologically, the crowds who assembled to hear Obama on election night were linear descendants of those egg throwers four decades before." 

Wel, DUH!  Some were the same people!  *rolls eyes*
