No, not for being president.
He became president because he was famous.
No, not for being governor of California.
He became governor because he was famous.
No, not for hosting Death Valley Days.
He hosted that show because he was famous.
No, not for Bedtime with Bonzo.
He starred in that because he was famous.
He became famous playing George Gipp in the Knute Rocke story.
...and what was his most famous line?
"Some time, Rock, when the team is up
against it, when things are wrong
and the breaks are beating the boys - tell them to go in there with all they've got
...and win just one for the Gipper."
So, Saint Reagan became famous for urging his team to win by quoting
a dead guy
so Notre Dame could beat Army in some meaningless, bullshit football game.
...if you quote a dead guy urging your team to win so the poor
can have a safety net,
...if you quote a dead guy urging your team to win so the middle class has health care,
...if you quote a dead guy urging your team to win so the people can have a voice in their government,
the GOP and the good puppy press will make the accusation (a thousand
times, from sea to shining sea)
that you are a spineless, uncaring, manipulative whore - but only if you're a Democrat.
Funny, the most sainted man in the Republican Party got famous
doing exactly what they did at the Wellstone
memorial, but that wasn't about some damn football game. Wellstone fought his heart out so the little guy could
get a break, and it was the crime of the century to use his memorial to spread his message a little further.
I wonder if Rush would agree?
That's not fair to Reagan!
Everything Bart says is a lie!
