The Vacantly Smiling old Fart Memorial Send-off

I'm planning this big party for the day when Ronnie finally kicks it. I'll call up all my friends and ask them over for beer, champagne, etc., play lots of kick-ass lesbian folk music on my non-American-made stereo, and do all kinds of other things offensive to the religious right. I mean, the guy has just always given me the creeps, and his election demonstrated everything that's wrong with democracy in this country. (Well, almost everything.) His legacy was a screwed-up economy, irresponsible military spending and widespread ecological disaster, faster population growth in third-world countries to which the US provided aid, and a nice long head-start for the spread of HIV before government funding kicked in. Given all that, and even though he has, arguably, been brain-dead since at least late 1986, I'll be pretty happy when that icon for good ol'-fashioned patriarchal hatred, smiling moronically as his wife's inflated hair bobs vacantly in the background, is poisoning the earth with his bones. Aren't you excited for me?
