But the idea that Reagan would have authorized torture by his own administration is unimaginable to me. [...] he [Reagan] was viscerally opposed to inhumane treatment of anyoneThat's why they had to equip him w/ oven mitts when his senile dementia became even more pronounced, isn't it? Because St. Ronnie was just such an amiable, not-harmful dunce, right? And his incredible opposition to inhumane treatment? Tell that to the mentally ill still wandering the streets of California. And, uh, Andy? How close to Reagan's viscera did you get? You do realize that, as a politician & B-minus list actor, he could certainly fool a dim-wit like you?
If we had retaied [sic] the fiscal health of the Clinton-Gingrich years into the new millennium, our range of possible actions right now would be far less dire.
