It's been difficult, but I am so proud of the Rethuglicans for finally finding someone to be their 2012 presidential candidate who accurately reflects their values and mental capabilities so well!
Except that these days in the Republican Party, Reagan would almost certainly be viewed as too liberal to be a Republican standard bearer. He raised taxes on more than one occasion, negotiated nuclear arms reduction treaty, etc.
Trouble is, Reagan wouldn't have gotten the 8 out of 10 required to pass their test.
