Ronnie with the Devil



You can hear the pious hypocrisy and mind-boggling irrationality of the modern right called out over and over again, but sometimes you have to see what everyone's talking about to truly appreciate how shameless the whole thing is.

This video not only sums up perfectly how ludicrous the right's claims of "class warfare" are -- it proves that their hallowed diety, Ronald Reagan, wouldn't stand a chance of getting elected today. Hell, if he dared talk like this he'd be publicly vilified, called a socialist traitor to Grover Norquist, and ultimately run out of the Republican party on a rail by a shrieking torch-and-pitchfork wielding mob.

Well, the Ronnie they deify, is a lot the Jesus they worship-characters made up out of whole cloth.

What Alex said!

Clearly the Gipper is merely quoting Obama for the purpose of mocking him!

This makes me happy. And also sad. History and facts do not matter to the current Republican mouth pieces.
