In commemoration...

This is what most intelligent people thought about Ronald Reagan back then. Reagan didn't care about what intelligent people thought, though. Intelligent people weren't his audience. Remember, he made bad B-movies, not great art... he was about bamboozling the general public, and could have cared less that intelligent people panned his movies as stupid and his Presidency as a crime against the American people.

Intelligent people generally agreed: Reagan was exactly as stupid as this video says. And America loved him for it.

  1. There's also this Ramones tribute to Teh Gimper. For context, a helpful music journalist explains why the song was written. Who knew that one of the Ramones was a conservative? For a little while, at least.

  2. All presidents are a crime against the American people.

  3. You nailed Reagan perfectly. Thank you.
