Yesterday the Challenger for the governor’s seat came into our TV set and said roughly, you know who had some good ideas about taxation? Ronald Reagan. Now the only logical thing to say next was, “I have decided to discontinue my campaign and support the incumbent.” It is an impressive act of smirk avoidance when a class warrior can try to claim the mantle of Ronald Reagan.
Let’s go through the facts:
Reagan was a great president.
Reagan was a Republican.
Reagan’s dead. He can’t testify to the astounding incorrectness of the assertion.
Voters don’t know that he is the antithesis of the challenger.
The press is going to ignore the challengers claims.
It will be an interesting six or seven weeks in Wisconsin. The good news is that illegal voting has been restricted recently. No doubt they will fight it into November because only winning matters.
