The attack dogs are out, and they’re not Democratic.
They are Republicans who “knew Reagan” and play the phony “you’re no Reagan” or “how dare you compare yourself to Reagan” or “how dare you put down Reagan,” or some variation on that theme, against Sarah Palin.
The latest is Ed Rollins (Palin, I knew Reagan. You’re no Reagan.), who just happens to be Mike Huckabee’s former campaign manager, doing his best impression of Joe Scarborough, Kathleen Parker and Peggy Noonan.
Okay, so you knew Reagan. His greatness and class obviously didn’t rub off on you.
What have you done for us lately?
How many Congressional seats did you help win in the mid-terms, how much money did you raise for non-establishment candidates, what have you ever done in the past twenty years other than run your mouth and put down other Republicans for your own personal aggrandizement?
So the next time those of you who want to tear apart the successful Republican coalition for your own personal fame and ambition want to invoke Reagan’s name, don’t.
