World's Oldest Known Progressives Discovered in Stone Age Swedish Lake Bed
"Archaeologists excavating a Stone Age lake bed in Motala, Sweden, have unearthed two skull impaled on spikes. The skulls were discovered with the stakes still firmly embedded inside them, reaching from the base of the skull to the top of the cranium."

Craftsmen even then, the Swedes didn't
allow any of this hodge-podge of cracked, misshapen brain buckets scattered derby style willy-nilly across the field, as was the custom in other, warmer climes.

Gerard, do you mean "oldest known Progressives" or "oldest known beneficiaries of Progressivism"? ;-)

The only good Progressive is a recently unearthed Progressive with a stake through his head, preferably still in Sweden.

These ancient Swedes only got four of them. The descendants of the surviving Evil Ones now run Sweden, and many more ecaped to Minnesota and Wisconsin about a hundred years ago. The Ancients should have tried much, much harder.
