Mark: Can I hold it? Woman: If you're careful. Mark: Wow... still warm to the touch! Woman: Remarkable, isn't it? Mark: Time for another visit from Library of Congress archivist Violet McPhee! What do you have for us today, Violet? Woman: An exquisite new acquisition, Mark... the founding document of the modern hate-speech movement - Newt Gingrich's famous GOPAC memo! In it, the Speaker instructs Republican candidates to smear their opponents with words like "sick, disgrace, corrupt, cheat, decay, pathetic, radical, traitor, greed, anti-family" and so on! The GOPAC memo is the Magna Carta of attack politics. It codified the toxic rhetoric that came to define an era! Mark: Fascinating... Woman: By the way, that's the Speaker's original copy - it's an extremely valuable acquisition! Mark: Even with the discoloration? Woman: Well, those are original mud stains - much prized by curators!
