Comparing a day or two of reflection to the Chinese treatment of Mao?


That may be the first thing I have seen of Greenwald's that I like.
Mao was deified.
One or two days? They still go on and on about Reagan.

Yep, and we're still paying for his listening to Lee Atwater's heinous views of how to win elections. Views, by the way, that Atwater allegedly denounced on his deathbed. I say allegedly because Mary Matalin (one of his friends and involved in clearing out his house after he passed) discovered his Bible still in its wrapping, after Atwater's declaration that he had read the Bible, found God, and denounced his old ways.

Yes, if there was one person who handed the election to Bush the Elder it was Lee Atwater Willie Horton.

I don't think so. Al Gore questioned Dukakis on the MA furlough program but never mentioned Willie Horton specifically--nor anyone else specifically.

Whatever. Chas is right. We've never heard the end of it about Reagan, and now it will be the same with George H. W. Bush.

That is funny. He died as he lived, lying.
