Even Barack Obama gets in on Reaganpalooza
(or Ronaroo, as I'm also calling it) in USA Today
today, but Jacob Heilbruun takes the cake in the Los Angeles Times
with a column arguing that Reagan was not a Reaganite!
Think I exaggerate? Here's the money quote: "Reagan, in other words, couldn't be counted among contemporary Reaganites."
Liberals who couldn't defeat Reagan in his time or his growing popularity since then are reduced to trying to pull off a Brinks job and make Reagan into a crypto-liberal. I'm calling this gambit "Gipper Groping," since it is an obvious molestation of the truth. Fortunately, I'm on the case, with the cover story in the latest National Review
debunking this nonsense.
