Q: What kind of governor would you want to be?
I don’t know. I’ve never played a governor.
Saint Ronnie answering a reporter’s question during his 1966 campaign for the California statehouse
This Sunday marks the centennial of that old cabbage-headed, B-grade actor, Saint Ronnie of Reagan, our nation’s first senile-while-in-office president.
Originally, I was trying to get some more lefty bloggers lined up to do a blogswarm, but we are competing against Blogroll Amnesty and the Superbowl, so it sort of sputtered and fizzled.
That said, if you would like to write some Saint Ronnie commentary, please let me know. I’ll be glad to round them up here and link to your blogs. I’ll put up a post on Sunday and we will begin collecting your nostalgic comments for the magic of Saint Ronnie, or what you think about the old bastard now that we’ve had 40 years of VooDoo economics to ruin the country and bankrupt us. He really was the gift that kept on giving.
If you do not have a blog, feel free to comment at length on Sunday. Colorful language is essential, Photoshopping is always encouraged (though I will ask you to put it on your own server, Flickr, Picassa, whatever and link it here).
As the Gipper would say, “Have fun, Mommie.”
PS – There will be some sort of government-sponsored celebration of old Potato-head’s life sometime in March. (Your tax-dollars at work, but I’m sure that the dingbats in the GOP will be OK with it…) Maybe we can jin up a real blogswarm for that event?
