Enough with Reagan, already!

Huzzah and kudos to Wonkette for proving beyond a doubt that conservative complaints about "the liberal media" are nothing but a sham.

Our saucy young correspondent points out -- correctly -- that Tuesday's political talk shows on cable news networks were heavily slanted toward former staff members of that dead proto-fascist Ronald Reagan. (They should have had the editorial staff of The Nation on TV all day instead, just to set the record straight about Reagan's life and policies.)

Mrs. Wonkette's point about the recent glut of "Gipperporn" is unassailable. I remember the last presidential funeral, for Democrat Lyndon Johnson in 1973. Sure enough, there was no steady parade of his former friends and advisers marching onto the sets at CNN, MSNBC, Fox News Channel, CNBC or even ABC's "Nightline." And I may be mistaken, but Internet news sites and blogs COMPLETELY IGNORED Johnson's death back in 1973!

Fucking liberal media, indeed.

You know what we need to counteract this barrage of free publicity for the GOP? We need a former Democratic president (Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton will do) to die. Like, right now. And not some wimpy heart attack or anything like that. Something spectacular.

Hmmm. We could put Hillary on it. She's a sneaky little shit.

Are you a complete idiot or just mildly retarded? Perhaps I should be generous and assume you are too young to remember that there was no such thing as either cable news or the Internet in 1973.

And so I say to you, sir or madam, are you a complete idiot or just mildly retarded? My case in point: You dismissed the obvious tongue-in-cheek tone of the post.

Jackass, please.
