I would love to be a conservative appreciator of Ronnie Raygun’s notorious and staggeringly ironic sense of humor: “If you’re explaining, you’re losing” and “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that they know so many things that aren’t so” and etcetera.
I am, alas, stuck being someone who can NEVER forget his statement regarding a bunch of people wanting a flower garden in their neighborhood upon whom he was about to set armed troops:
“If it takes a bloodbath, let’s get it over with.”
He said this about college students and neighborhood folk in an fight over a public garden—look it up. Remember, this is the guy that tens of millions of your fellow Americans look UP to . . .
