Reagan is Dead. The Future Looks Bright. | Common Dreams

No one is happier about Tuesday’s election outcome than the ghost of Ronald Reagan. Finally, the Gipper’s spirit can pass over the River Styx to his great reward after being held hostage by a menagerie of right-wing freaks and loons since his death in 2004.

No name has been as consistently invoked during the primaries by candidates President Reagan wouldn’t have bothered to spit on even had they set themselves on fire in front of him. Still, the Gipper was their spiritual prisoner despite the fact that he couldn’t win a single GOP primary if he ran today because of the party’s extremist drift.
