I'd have left out the Dole diaper joke; but I entirely agree with the history-unrewriting remarks about Saint Ronald, who started his reign of destruction when he was gov/ca and never stopped. Even if we give him "winning the cold war" (which he didn't: he just had the good fortune to be in office when the inevitable happened to a crumbling empire, expedited by the emergence of Mikhail Gorbachev on the scene), he's entirely and personally responsible for the persisting insanity and destructive disrespect for the non-wealthy, non-white, non-male, non-straight, non-native-born that consumes the party that reveres him.
Not to mention the fantasy-based economic policies that have failed from the get-go but which, exactly because they're based on feel-good fantasy and easy answers, his party continues to espouse to this day and beyond. So, yeah. What Bill said.
