Charen, Mona: Useful Idiots: "Who won the Cold War? Though it seems absurd even to ask the question, many liberals are now attempting to rewrite history by claiming that they were no less opposed to Communism than conservatives -- and even more instrumental in defeating it.

'Though American liberals have staunchly proclaimed their anticommunism in the decade or so since the hammer and sickle were consigned to the 'ash heap of history,'' writes Charen, 'things were very different when the red flag flew over the Kremlin.'"
