Happy birthday, Ron

by David Safier

Ronald Reagan. Raised taxes. Grew government. Negotiated with enemies.

Not that I have a problem with that kind of thing. But his conservative mythologizers do.

Ah, well, Reagan was an expert at communicating nonsense. Great at it, according to his nickname. Why shouldn't his hagiographers do the same?

  1. “These gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America’s founding fathers.” — Ronald Regan while introducing the Mujahideen leaders to media on the White house lawns (1985).

    But on the bright side, he DID make it possible for 80 year old politicos to use black hair dye (see Mubarak) without compunction. And he was a full employment plan for astrologers.
