What’s in it for Chicago?

The current President of the United States has decided not to join other world leaders at the November 9th ceremony marking the fall of the Berlin Wall because he’s too busy. “He sacrificed his free time on that Olympic trip” White House spokesman Scusie said today, “plus he hit like, wow, five tv Sunday talk shows – everyone except Fox, of course. So no way does he have time to go back to Germany, not when he’d just have to turn around and go back to Sweden or some place like that to get this big award for being the very bestest person in the world. He’s a very busy man.”

Indeed he is, Scusie, and aren’t we proud of him? Of course, to be fair to the man, perhaps he realizes that he and the crowd he has brought to Washington opposed Reagan and worked against the very policies that caused the wall to fall. To show up and even bask in the credit owed braver, wiser people would be the utmost in hypocrisy and, while I would expect that from The One, maybe  just this once he’s being honest.

    Well, you know, that was a Ronald Reagan achievement, and he was, you know, a neocon Neanderthal.

    Pay attention.

    Our National Socialist failed to get the Olympics for Chicago.

    I remember when Reagan stood in front of the Brandenberg Gate in 1987 and gave his speech saying “Mr Gorbachev: tear down this wall!” It seemed impossible, outlandish, risky and, goodness gracious, like we might offend the Russians.

    “Former West German Chancellor Helmut Kohl said he would never forget standing near Reagan when he challenged Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. “He was a stroke of luck for the world, especially for Europe””
