Reagan Pegs Bush, Circa 1986

This just in from the newly published Reagan Diaries:

From the entry for May 17, 1986:

"A moment I've been dreading. George [Sr., VP at the time] brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at 'The New Republic' and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."

Reagan got Dubya right. Too bad it's who you know not what you know, even at the top (or as was Shrub's case, tugging at the coat tails at the very top). I say, and I am not the first to say, that America gets the government it deserves -- and the government which, generally, the movers and the shakers of the Empire WANT.

You won't find dumb presidents in the EU. You just won't.

Nope, you won't. Dumb Prime Ministers on the other hand...

Hey what do you think of the current pack of candidates? I'm doing a poll on my site and Ron Paul is taking over... His online support is ridiculous.

Check out the disparity!
