Mean and Stupid

Ketchup as a vegetable. Trees cause pollution. Funding for Central American death squads. Stingers for the Mujahideen. Nerve gas precursors for Saddam. Hawk missiles for Khomeini. Ollie North. James Watt. William Casey. Ed Meese. Ignoring "the gay disease". "Trickle Down". "We start bombing in five minutes". Deficits as far as the eye can see.

Christopher Hitchens is willing to speak ill of the dead and so am I.

The panegyrics make me gag. That my country was saddled with his presidency for so long makes me think of history as an evil conspiracy.
