Nancy Reagan Failed Her Country

Here’s Nancy Reagan at The Waldorf Astoria Hotel with a then two-year old Paris Hilton who posted the photo on Twitter today. At the time, Ronald Reagan was practically considered Jesus if Jesus was an elderly man with Alzheimer’s from California, so would anyone have really faulted his wife if she, oh I dunno, chucked a baby out a window? Seriously, I realize it’s hip these days to blame the Reagans for everything that’s gone wrong in this country over the past 30 years, but c’mon, how can you look at this photo and not yell, “Stab it in the neck! No jury will convict!” in the middle of a crowded bookstore until security escorts you out? It’s impossible. (Call my lawyer.)
