Right of Reagan?

I never thought I'd see the day when the Republican Party was so far to the right of their modern-day founder, Ronald Reagan. But, thanks to Andrew Sullivan's intrepid work, I can pass onto you this little snippet of fluff.

That Giuliani commits such a bald-faced gaffe is not surprising to me. He's had his foot in his mouth for so long since 9/11 that he's chewed right through his soles and is now gnawing at his fallen arches.

Funny thing is, Reagan is starting to look pretty damn good (even with all the deficit spending he did and with all the strong-arming of unions and shafting of the middle and working classes). In some ways, Obama himself has started to resemble the old fart in the way he deliberates and commits himself to peace first, before rushing out with guns a-blazin' like the Cheneyites did.
