Political Bravado And Sainthood

There are saints in Catholicism and some other variants of religion, John McCain is apparently worried about some damn Republican idea of political sainthood. Now once we've gone so far as to use saint and Republican in the same sentence you're way ahead of me and filled in St Ronnie Reagan. Yes folks, one of that Obama character's nominees, one for the second slot at Interior, an ill-spoken oaf named David Hayes said something nasty about St Ronnie back in April 2006, in fact this clod had the nerve to make a comparison between the Invisible Republican George W and St Ronnie.
"Like Ronald Reagan before him, President Bush has embraced the Western stereotype to the point of adopting some of its affectations--the boots, brush-clearing, and get-the-government-off-our-backs bravado."

Now what the hell John Sidney? You object to bravado or the cowboy stuff? I gotta tell you McPOW - that was movie magic, I know ranchers and cowboys and of those two Republicans neither qualify as more than hobbyists.

This nonsense you Republicans have made of Ronnie Reagan is pathetic. You make up all kinds of metrics to create something that never existed - and that's OK if you want to believe that crap. The problem is that a whole bunch of us have looked at the record and the results and we're real unimpressed. We don't have to be impressed with your myth making, there is absolutely no requirement of good government that says we have to buy a bit of it. In fact on the basis of the record one could call him a cowardly son of a bitch with as many of the mythologized founders' principles as a goddamned rock has.

Let's just agree to disagree about his sainthood. That would be best for you and the myth. The facts stand on their own and if you want to have that particular tussle you'll lose and it won't be opinions. Voting against confirmation on this basis is childish at best and attracting the interest of the knowledgeable without a Republican agenda is stupid.

Think about this, some people actually voted for this numbnuts.

Yes, and in so doing they are taking a page out of Ronnie's own playbook. Ironic, no?
