    He was the man. Period.

    This one is my favorite…

    Clips like this belie the caricature of the Left of Reagan as slow or dim-witted.  It takes a sharp mind to bounce an impromptu quip like that back to a hostile questioner.

    Is this really the best quality footage we can find?!

    Boy this just makes me depressed by our current stock of candidates…I don’t think any of them could manage to make such a joke without also making it sound like an invective.

    Happy Birthday, Ronaldus Magnus.


    And Thank You, Troy. Watching clips of Him never get old.

  8. Western Chauvinist

    God bless him. I needed the laugh today.
