    I believe what he's actually loved and revered for are the Reagan-Gorbachev PEACE TALKS.

    I don't think it's funny. It probably terrified people during the Cold War.

    Very true. Of course... but the fear was very real and fear can drive people to violence.

    I was actually alive during the end of the cold war, although I was a child, so I remember how people thought...it was much worse among older people who remember the 50's and 60's, I think.

    I kinda like it, as a critique of what's wrong with liberals.

    My favorite anti-conservative quote comes from a semi-famous comedian:

    "A liberal is a guy who wakes up in the morning and says "I feel great, but I know that some people don't" A conservative is a guy who wakes up in the morning and says "I feel great AND THAT'S ALL THAT FUCKING MATTERS." -Marc Maron
