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?

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
