We Really Miss Reagan

by
Abby Zimet

Eager to pay off a $23 million debt racked up by the entertaining but less than competent Michael Steele, the Republican National Committee is selling....errr...honoring Ronald Reagan to mark his 100th birthday this Sunday. A new website offers nostalgic GOPers a "high quality" Reagan bobblehead ($25), the Gipper's fav jelly beans (ditto), a framed photo of his inauguration ($400?!), a bunch of stuff that says we miss him, memorable if way stupid quotes ("There you go again") and a chance to sign a birthday card. No word on how it will be delivered. Desperate, much?

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
