  1. “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.

    • Yeah, because this election is all bout Obama vs. Reagan…

      • 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.

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