Warren Harding in the news

I saw in the National Review a sarcastic quip about the New York Times’s front page editorial urging gun control.  The quip was that the last time they did this (and with the mocking commentary that this means this is the most pressing issue in 95 years) — it was to broadside against the Republican nomination of Warren Harding.  And so the editorial is fated to be ignored by the public, just as Warren Harding prepared for a landslide victory in November.

Leaving aside whether the NYT editorial is right on the issue, this is an odd comment for comparison… Or… Was the New York Times not right to warn America about the perils and what it represents to nominate and elect Warren Harding?  History, as always, shall be the judge.
