In a bit of cloying irritation Fox and the NFL managed to salute the 100th birthday of Ronald Reagan yesterday during the pre-game festivities to the Super Bowl.
And why not, after all who better to salute the Gipper than another group of billionaires who are going to lock-out their workers and get people to call it a strike?
As Charles Pierce noted, the Super Bowl occurred just prior to January 30th, 1982 the Centennial of Franklin Roosevelt’s birth, and that was met with crickets. But then all he did is guide the nation through a Depression and the Second World War.
But he never made a movie with a Chimp so I guess he’ll just have to settle for being a far greater President than Reagan.
