"The best that can be said for Ronald Reagan is that, if George W. Bush gets re-elected, we may yet end up missing him." -- Yeouch. The Village Voice's scorching obit for Reagan calls him "the real successor to John Wilkes Booth," an actor who "destroyed America's sense of reality" and believed he ruled "an entirely fictional United States." Yeah, that's pretty much how I remember it.

UPDATE: Clark Humphrey has many choice reality check links in his two-part "Reagan Without Tears" roundup, check it out. (Scroll down a bit.)
