Gipper for Prez
Question: If you could decide to have Ronald Reagan’s corpse replace George Bush right now, would you do it? Granted, the people working in the Whitehouse would probably be the same guys; and Rove & Co would probably still be his handlers. But Bush would be out of the picture. Would that help? Does Bush play some role in preventing his handlers from screwing us over even more? Would it just be more of the same? Or is Bush screwing up his handlers in the way that a popular deadman couldn’t? Would Reagan’s aura somehow sway the conservative movement into a healthier direction; or would they merely abuse it by doing everything the exact opposite as to how it should be done? Would you vote for a dead Reagan?
