Math is not a GOP strong suit.

BMulligan: demaL-demaL-yeH:

Mondale was not a syphilitic cockroach.

Nor was he a presidential candidate in 1980.


Well, his name was among those presented to the Electoral College, so  it's not totally impossible.

demaL-demaL-yeH: Barricaded Gunman: Walker's "I voted for St Reagan when I was 13!" reminds me of Dick Cheney getting all misty-eyed about the "rows of crosses" he always admired at Arlington National Cemetery:

"Just before you settle down on the landing pad, you look upon Arlington National Cemetery...its gentle slopes and crosses row on row," Cheney said. "I never once made that trip without being reminded how enormously fortunate we all are to be Americans..."

You know, the rows of crosses that aren't actually there.

This. He never farking looked. Never cared. Farked up the DoD big time, too.


He very likely sees them in his nightmares, but it's nothing a dose of good nazi dope shouldn't be able to fix.

I voted for Reagan in '84, and I wasn't even born yet.  I've never regretted that vote, although I didn't exist at the time.

Satan's Bunny Slippers: propasaurus: Well, I'll tell you what, ya bunch of kids. I actually voted for John Anderson.

/yeah, I was an idiot in 1980, too.

I voted Reagan, and I don't feel all that smart about it :)


I voted for Ed Clark, which means I voted for a Koch as VP.

Reagan. 1984.

Do the math. We dodged a bullet.

BunkoSquad: Nabb1: I think we did one in 1984 when I was in middle school, too. I voted for Reagan, as I recall. My poor mom even had me poking fun at her for voting for Mondale.

Yeah, we did that too. I voted for Mondale because I snuck over to a friend's house to watch "The Day After" and was pretty sure that Reagan wanted to start a nuclear war. There are still days I'm surprised he didn't.


Well Reagan basically should have started WWIII with his posturing, apart from Stanislav Petrov ignoring his explicit orders and not raising the alarm he should have when there was a glitch in the Soviet nuclear launch detection system that signaled the start of a US nuclear offensive. Obviously Reagan's posturing (Evil Empire speech, Star Wars, Afghanistan, the Able Archer 83 war games, etc.) had escalated tensions to the point that it looked to them like he might launch a pre-emptive attack at any moment.

JusticeandIndependence: El_Perro: Yet Wendy Davis gets torn apart for claiming that she was divorced at age 19 (because her divorce was finalized when she was 20, so she was TECHNICALLY only "separated" at 19).

torn apart?


It's a figure of speech.

I figure since you're being overly pedantic, I'd respond in kind.

I still, to this day, can not understand how a five-time draft dodger became Secretary of Defense, especially in an era of a relatively sane Republican Party.

Only relative to the Teahadists. Republicans went off the rails when they put Bill Brock III in charge of the RNC. He's the one who put the Birchers and Fundies squarely in the saddle.

sdd2000: I bet a Voter Id law would have been real useful for this as well.

Except the  voter ID laws are only to filter out UnAmerican librul Democrats.

To be fair, those years are a blur to conservatives. They think Reagan was a conservative.,

So it would have been Reagan's fault that the Soviets started WWIII due to the extreme paranoia of Yuri Andropov and the rest of the Politbureau and KGB, not to mention a deeply flawed Soviet warning/response system? Do tell.

No, you don't start world wars with "posturing."

theorellior: During our mock election in my fourth grade class, I made sure everyone knew they could vote Libertarian. Not that I was a Libertarian, I was actually voting for Carter, I was just so impressed that there was another political party out there that I thought everyone needed to know.


theorellior: Nabb1: Dusk-You-n-Me: He could have meant a mock election at school.

I was in third grade in 1980 and we had a mock election from the "Weekly Reader" - a little weekly "news" paper for elementary school kids, and Reagan won the third grade, and the whole school, handily. And it was in Georgia, Jimmy Carter's home state. Kids that age tend to vote in those sorts of things based on what they hear from their parents, so that was a pretty grim canary in the coal mine for old Jimmy to get trounced in elementary school elections in his own home state the week before the election. I think we did one in 1984 when I was in middle school, too. I voted for Reagan, as I recall. My poor mom even had me poking fun at her for voting for Mondale.

Arachnophobe: what_now: I remember being asked who I thought should win the1984 election, and I saying "George Washington". Of course, I was 6.

I was 10 in '84, so I'm fairly sure I'd have said I wanted Optimus Prime to win, especially if he'd picked Grimlock as his VP.


Now that is a presidential candidate worth voting for!

Optimus 2016!

I voted for Reagan in 84. But I learned my lesson fast.
I know I can never TRULY make up for what I've done, but I can try to live a good life since. Republicans hate that.
