  1. Sources close to the White House say, “the Video Editor was on drugs.”

  2. Damn, I just realized that some teenager on YouTube might see that and think it’s real…

  3. It’s amazing how after having Bush as President, Reagan seems less moronic than he used to.

  4. I have a similar sound file that’s circulated more or less for the 15 years or so. I remember coming across it back in high school.

    Good times.

  5. “Cocaine makes me happy”… LMAO!!!

  6. Edward,

    Yeah, he seems just sort of dazedly stupid, rather than aggressively ignorant like W.

  7. I saw this in 1993, as the opening attraction for a movie about Karen Carptenter done with Barbie Dolls.

    Tragically, I can remember it clearly.

    Anyone else remember that?

  8. Anyone else remember that?

    The Karen Carpenter movie? Yeah, it’s called Superstar and it was directed by Todd Haynes, who went on to make Safe, Velvet Goldmine, and Far from Heaven.

  9. Superstar!

    I saw in the old Biograph on M Street.

    I think it’s a real estate office now.

    Sad.

  10. superstar is something else. no wonder it got (threatened/sued??) out of existence.

  11. I bet the original version is much funnier.

  12. It’s amazing how after having Bush as President, Reagan seems less moronic than he used to..

    Reagan wasn’t at all. He was an idea guy. He read Hayek and Reason. Bush doesn’t seem like he ever ponders anything intellectual and interesting.

  13. Ever see the movie “A Fish Named Wanda”? The Kevin Klein character claims he can’t be stupid because he reads Nietsche. But Jamie Lee Curtis points out that he doesn’t understand Nietsche. Reading by itself isn’t everything.

  14. Rick Barton

    Reagan wrote all his own speeches til he became president. Very few presidents in fact have as much of a record of writing. In addition to his speeches Reagan’s work included essays and poetry.

  15. Okay, okay, the guy was a genius. Geez!

  16. Colors, a Poem by Ronald Reagan

    Leprochauns are green
    And commies are red
    When all’s said and done
    The best commies are dead.

    My mind’s not the best
    It must be the trees
    They’re lethal, you know
    I forget the rest….

  17. Funny!

    But not as funny as THIS.

  18. Edward,

    That’s one of the greatest insults in cinema history. Let’s review:

    Otto: Don’t call me stupid.
    Wanda: Oh, right, to call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people. I’ve worn dresses with higher IQs. I’ve known sheep that could outwit you, but you think you’re an intellectual don’t you, ape?
    Otto: Apes don’t read philosophy.
    Wanda: Yes, they do Otto, they just don’t understand it. Now let me correct you on a couple of things here. Aristotle was not Belgian. The central message of Buddhism is not “every man for himself,” and the London Underground is not a political movement. Those are all mistakes, Otto. I looked them up. Now, you have just assaulted the one man who can keep you out of jail and make you rich. What are you going to do about it huh? What would an intellectual do? What would Plato do?

  19. Godfrey,

    Yeah, that video is funny but some of the comments on there are cringe inducing. Oh, well. People get the government they deserve.

  20. Thanks, Prolibertate. It is a great insult.

  21. It’s amazing how after having Bush as President, Reagan seems less moronic than he used to.

    After GWB, Ernest T. Bass seems less moronic than he used to.

  22. Pro Libertate, Edward,

    Afish called Wanda is IMHO the best work the “Queen of Scream” has ever done.

  23. Geezus, I forgot what a queen of the undead Nancy was – ughuhuhuh[shivers]

  24. Nancy and her astrologer were the brains behind Reagan’s pretty face.

  25. Say what you want, Reagan was the right president to confront the crumbling USSR.

  26. superstar is something else. no wonder it got (threatened/sued??) out of existence.

    Superstar is on YouTube:

  27. “Say what you want, Reagan was the right president to confront the crumbling USSR.”

    It’s a good thing it was crumbling.
