Let's hear it for Ron Reagan

I've occasionally thought it must gall Ron Reagan to hear someone like Rush Limbaugh even mentioning his father's name, let alone claiming his authority from the late president.

I, like a lot of people, had little love for President Reagan's programs, but he had a focus and a stance and strong uncompromising principles and I would imagine his sense of kindness would allow him to do what most of us wouldn't, i.e., actually piss on Rush Limbaugh if he were on fire.

So it was my delight to read this as posted on Tim Graham's blog

One thing Reagan said on the audio (link is below) that wasn't in this transcript was reminding us about the time Rush was stopped at customs with a suitcase full of Viagra... remembering that make this callout even more amusing:

Ron Reagan Junior: 'Limbaugh Hasn't Had a Natural Erection Since the Nixon Administration'

They used to mock the manhood of Ron Reagan ("Junior") for being a ballet dancer. But Junior is striking back on his leftist Air America radio show. He would not stand for Rush Limbaugh joking about Nancy Pelosi shaking from "Botox withdrawal," and even recycled a January routine in which Limbaugh joked to keep the birth rate down, "simply put pictures of Nancy Pelosi ... in every cheap motel room." Reagan Junior unloaded on Limbaugh being on thin ice for making erection jokes (click here for the entire audio):

Limbaugh hasn't had a natural erection since the Nixon Administration; think he's compensating for something? Now, I wouldn't pick on him for any of this stuff, not his blubbiness, not his man-boobs, not his inability to have a natural erection -- none of that stuff -- to me, off limits until! until! -- Mr. Limbaugh, you turn that sort of gun on somebody else -- once you start doing that, you're fair game, fat boy. Absolutely, you jiggly pile of mess. You're just fair game, and you're going to get it, too. [Laughs] You'd better watch what you say, Limbaugh, because it can come back the other way.

Junior also strangely claimed that Pelosi looks pretty good for a grandma, but Limbaugh looks like "the unholy spawn of Tony Soprano and the Michelin Man."

He also jumped all over CNN analyst Alex Castellanos joking that "If Speaker Pelosi were still capable of human facial expression, she'd be embarrassed" by the "Nixon-like position" she's in. He said "This from a guy who looks like he just stepped out of a road production of [the Harvey Fierstein drag-queen musical] La Cage Aux Folles."
