Every Rebel guerrilla and jayhawker, every man who ran to Canada to avoid the draft, every bounty-hunter, every deserter, every cowardly sneak that ran from danger and disgraced his flag, every man who loves slavery and hates liberty. . .and every villain, of whatever name or crime, who loves power more than justice, slavery more than freedom, is a Democrat (and an endorser of Andrew Johnson). James A. Garfield, 1866:D

that was McKinley, Garfield was shot by a dude that thought he deserved a job in his Administration. He should have survived by all accounts, his treatment was horrendous even by the standards of the day
