Dubya owes Ronnie

In spite of all the revolting hagiography, I will bite my tongue and not speak ill of the dead. Yet there’s no doubt Dubya owes Reagan big time as the US media’s nonstop pandering to and about Reagan chases all other news away. Of course, there’s no news out there — other than Rumsfeld admitting we’re losing the war on terror and the Wall Street Journal (yes, the WSJ, not the NY Times or some such “liberal” publication) getting ahold of a report from administration lawyers concluding before the war in Iraq that “the president’s inherent constitutional authority to manage a military campaign” means prohibitions against torture “must be construed as inapplicable to interrogations undertaken pursuant to his commander-in chief authority.”
