    “I can tell you it only hurts for a minute and then it feels just great.”
    -Ronald Reagan on voting Republican for the first time.

    I am waiting patiently for the Republican Party to retrain their anger on Reagan, since I think it’s a little bit ickier when a 70-year-old man makes a joke of a woman’s virginity (especially one that is considerably more graphic and raw) than a 26-year-old young woman.

        Well, considering the most positive comparisons of Romney are that he somehow embodies Reagan, I don’t think that is an out-of-bounds observation. Indeed, I think there is no small amount of hypocrisy when questions of the appropriateness of a Democrat’s ad are made when one of the lions of the Republican party not only opened that door years ago, but opened it far wider and far tackier.

          Thanks for your comments Jon. I have a few thoughts on them.
          ~As a woman I would consider the five second quip by Reagan inappropriate. However,
          ~As a young adult 30 years ago I can attest to a much different attitude back then. Not saying such talk should be accepted but that it was a different era. It’s the same as slang words that were common place years ago yet are today considered improper.
          ~Comparing team Romney to team Obama I think would give a more more fair observation of today’s standards.

    The video from the Obama campaign was disturbing, to say the least!!!
