Happy Reagan Day

Charles Pierce writes a love letter on the occasion of Reagan’s 101st birthday.

You were the smiling face of unimaginable bigotry, the sunny spokesman for greed and selfishness, the friendly game-show host handing out cruelty as a lovely parting gift, the chuckling ringmaster summoning up the worse angels of our nature. You richly deserve in posterity every crazy thing that people now say they are doing in your name, in service to your legacy, and as a perfect statement of everything for which you once stood. Enjoy it, wherever you are and, like I said, happy birthday.
