Reagan gone; Bush still here
It looks like they finally got Reagan into the ground. It was pretty suspenseful there for a while. Bush’s handlers have been so frantic this week about trying to tie their candidate as closely as possible to the dear, departed Gipper that I half expected them to shove their boy into the coffin—for the lying in state at least, if not for the actual burial. Not that it would have been a bad idea.

Note to trolls and Secret Service agents: the above was a tasteless joke. I do not advocate the actual burial alive of sitting presidents. That would be wrong.
