    I had this mad desire to go to the GOP caucuses here in Minnesota and spout Ronald Reagan stuff:  Based on performance, he was in favor of massive federal deficits, had the biggest tax increase in history (at the time), was pro-union, appointed the first woman Supreme Court justice and appointed a Surgeon General who based his job on reality!

    Of course, 9/11 proved that when it came to handling terrorism, Jimmy Carter was right and Ronald Reagan was wrong.  Reagan let the racist nutjobs take over.  But I didn't want to talk about that.

    It's a sad day when we can hold up Reagan to show how far off the deep end the Republican Party has fallen.  They've drunk the Kool-Aid, and let the racist nutjobs and tax-dodging gun nuts take over.

    Making fun of the current slate of Republicans is all well and good.  Next step:  Win elections.

      To be clear:  I didn't bother going to the GOP caucuses.  (Or the Democratic one.)  It would have been unpleasant for me, and I enjoy seeing them self-destruct from a distance.

      Still, I can snipe from the sidelines, to greater effect.
