Ungodly Politics

"Announcing your plans is a good way to hear god laugh." - Al Swearingen

So the old fart finally died. He's been brain dead for 20+ years, but get ready for an orgy of sorrow and anguish that The Great Communicator has passed on.

Of course, if he was a liberal, here's how the obituary would start:

"Our first divorced president, his second wife was already pregnant when he married her. (Suppose there would be a mention that her rep was for giving the best head in Hollywood?) He presided over the most corrupt administration of the 20th Century, with countless member of his administration indicted or convicted of crimes, some of them near treasonous.

His response to the bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon was to pull out of Lebanon and invade Grenada, a small island in the Caribbean. This told the terrorists that we are weak, and will run if hurt badly enough.

While often remembered for his line, 'Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall,' the fact that Mr Gorbachev didn't tear down the wall isn't mentioned at all."

I'm sure there's about a thousand things I could add, but that's a good start, and you can bet the "liberal media" would be playing that angle if Reagan had been a liberal president.
