Unhinged quote of the day – Michael Reagan

The honor goes to Michael Reagan, conservative talk show host for his incredible assertion that Sarah Palin is the reincarnation of his father Ronald Reagan. This quote is a gem of insanity.

I’ve been trying to convince my fellow conservatives that they have been wasting their time in a fruitless quest for a new Ronald Reagan to emerge and lead our party and our nation. I insisted that we’d never see his like again because he was one of a kind.

I was wrong!

Wednesday night I watched the Republican National Convention on television and there, before my very eyes, I saw my Dad reborn; only this time he’s a she…Welcome back, Dad, even if you’re wearing a dress and bearing children this time around.

Man, I thought I’d never stick up for Ronald Reagan, but this is a horrible insult to the late former president. Thankfully, son Ron Reagan hasn’t taken leave of his senses:

Ron Reagan, 50, told WND he cannot speak for his father, who died in 2004, but doubts the 40th president would approve of Palin if he were alive and well today.

“Sarah Palin,” he said, “has nothing in common with my father, a two-term governor of the largest state in the union, a man who had been in public life for decades, someone who had written, thought and spoke for decades about foreign policy issues, domestic policy issues, and on and on and on.”

Creationism is one of the scary beliefs Palin advocates, he said.

“It doesn’t bother some people, I know, but, frankly, somebody like that has no idea what kind of planet we live on – literally has no idea what the planet is all about,” Ron Jr. said.

“It’s such a profoundly anti-intellectual, anti-science stance,” he asserted. “I don’t see how you can hold high office and believe something like that.”
