Re-enacting czarist pogroms

Let the conservative whining begin? Headline notwithstanding, Paul Waldman knows that the whining, bitching, moaning, and rending of garments never stopped on the right:

This is an old story -- even before the Civil War, Southerners couldn't talk enough about how those elitist Northerners were looking down their noses at the South. And is there a group of people anywhere in the world so obsessed with glorifying and celebrating a war they lost? A century and a half ago, my people were suffering through the Czar's pogroms, but I don't spend my weekends re-enacting them.
It's amazing how the hermaphrodites (pricks and pussies at the same time!) on talk radio can continue to feed the same message of combined omnipotence and victimization to their audience without ever taking a break to account for wildly varying events. But then their audience is not exactly filled with the sharpest tools in the shed.
