Ronald Reagan, tax raiser

Poor old Republicans!

David Brooks gave them a tiny spotlight this morning on ABC’s ‘This Week’ with George Stephanopoulos – video included:

That the tiny spotlight might lead to their facing reality (instead of waving the glowy Reagan flag of how they wish he’d been) is a dim possibility for the proud and arrogant Republican Party.

Yet it is difficult to avert a downward spiral when you refuse honest  measurement or admit the true path of your trajectory.

And the wacky 3-D glasses of party partisanship further distort issues.

Well, if the GOP needs it, several manufacturers bottle ginkgo biloba for memory loss, even of the most virulent politically expedient variety.

If I were one of the GOP, I’d take a minimum of 3 bottles’ worth of ginko biloba before even thinking of reading the next Reagan biography make-over or dream-infested  manifesto of Reaganomics.

But that’s only what I would do – especially since it’s difficult to believe that Ronald Reagan or his ghost can help them now.

This is my journey; these are their stories…
