Much of the country will "spring forward" this weekend (Sunday at 2 a.m. to be specific) for the start of Daylight Saving Time.
But "spring forward" sounds kind of socialistic. Today's GOP just can't go along with that, especially since President Obama will be setting his clocks one hour ahead.
So some parts of the country will be changing to Republican Saving Time and setting their clocks back -- waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back.
For instance, Arkansas -- which has decided Supreme Court decisions on abortion don't apply to them -- will be turning the clock back to 1972. That's the year before the Roe V. Wade decision.
In Alabama -- which has decided the Voting Rights Act is passe -- clocks will be turned back to 1964, the year before that landmark civil rights law was passed.
Michigan will be setting the clock back to 1934. That's the year before the National Labor Relations Act was passed.
Some other states will be turning the clock back to 1964 because that was also the year before the Griswold v. Connecticut decision that established the right to privacy in a birth control case.
Still others will be resetting their clocks to 1955, back when everyone liked Ike and June Cleaver was the sexiest thing on TV and women belonged in the kitchen and those pesky minorities weren't always expecting free stuff and thinking they might one day become president.
