I first thought about posting some Reagan era punk rock song tonight. Then I saw Eric Davidson of the New Bomb Turk's list and decided he had it covered pretty well. So I decided to post something with a bit more of a hesher with a lot of soul vibe instead. Show More Summary
I know some people are praising Donald Trump’s speech and some are just being idiots about, like Chris Matthews. Addresses are different when you read the written word. When doing that, it’s easier to absorb and to get a real sense of what the person was attempting to convey. Show More Summary

33 years ago, Ronald Reagan was elected president in large part because of his TV ad: “It’s morning in America.” “It’s morning again in America, and under the leadership of President Reagan, our country is prouder and stronger and better.” For many Americans, the inauguration of Donald Trump foretells a period of darkness.

Trump's speech has so far had deliberate echoes of Lincoln (we are gathered here) and FDR (forgotten men and women). Now he's channeling Bill Clinton (their pain is our pain). Now Carter (I will never let you down). Now Reagan (we will shine for everyone to follow). Now himself (we will make America great again).

MATT WUERKER has thoroughly enjoyed playing with President Obama’s face. Wuerker goes so far as to call the president’s countenance “a great gift to cartoonists” — perhaps even “the best mug to work with since Reagan.” “He simply has a hugely expressive face with a great range of expressions,” says Wuerker, Politico’s Pulitzer-winning cartoonist. “His […]
