Ronald Reagan is apparently on his last legs. According to reports, his condition has markedly deteriorated in the recent past.

When Ronnie does go, he'll get personal credit for a lot of things ("Tear down that wall, Mr. Gorbachev.") that he doesn't deserve, the fall of the ex-Soviet Union being one of them. There will be an outpouring of Republican grief on the day Reagan dies, and believe it or not, Monkey Boy™ will get a bounce from it.

While there would never be any real love lost between Ronald Reagan and myself, I sympathize with Nancy Reagan. "Ronnie's long journey has finally taken him to a distant place where I can no longer reach him," she said. I recently lost a loved one to complications from Alzheimer's, and I can tell you that no one deserves such an ignoble ending. May his journey soon come to a merciful conclusion.

Update, 5:15PM - Well, that didn't take long.
