INDEX
RONALD REAGAN'S  
Mixed Legacy

Eric Haubert          June 26, 2004      (June 10)       page 2


When Ronald Reagan died, I was reminded of the death of
Leonid Brezhnev in Russia.  I was amazed at how much
outpouring of grief there was for such an ostensibly evil man; --
(Brezhnev, that is).

Women were crying over Brezhnev, and everybody looked so
sad.   I commented that "it's like (the death of)
 the Pope," and
somebody said, "more like J. Edgar Hoover."

I can't help but find it amusing that Reagan had Alzheimer's,
after Ronald and Nancy campaigned so hard against marijuana
because it "destroys your brain."   Several years ago, I rewrote
a song lyric to say of Reagan that "Maybe he should have tried
smoking some weed !"    I haven't yet heard of any "potheads"
getting Alzheimer's.

I feel sympathy and ideological kinship with the two children,
"Ron" Reagan and Patti "Davis," who are both "liberals."


It is perhaps ironic that George W. Bush wants to be more like
Ronald Reagan than his own father, but Michael Reagan wants
to be more like Rush Limbaugh.   Ron (junior) wants to be like
Phil Donahue, and Patti reminds me of Carrie Fisher, --
(Princess Leia in
STAR WARS).

Ronald Reagan is Darth Vader, if Ann Coulter is his
IDEOLOGICAL daughter.   (Ann Coulter is Rush Limbaugh's
favorite "femi-Nazi").   I guess the "Obiwan Kenobi" in this
version would be Hugh Hefner (or perhaps Howard Stern).

It bothers me when they call Reagan a "B-movie" actor.   That's
like calling William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy "B-movie"
actors.

A company called Video YesterYear sells a tape called  "The
President Fights the Japs ... and Dirt !"    I would also
recommend (with reservations) the Irving Berlin show "This is
the Army,"  and the movies "Tropic Zone" and "She's Working
Her Way Through College."
