The Reagan Diaries...This post in from cub reporter and Sander Gretchen Sorensen in Seattle

"A moment I've been dreading. George brought his n'er-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida; the one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."

From the REAGAN DIARIES------entry dated May 17, 1986.

Laura Bush looks almost alive in this picture. Must've been before they started stuffing her with Prozac and cigarettes.

And to think, the shiftless on found something shiftier to do than The New Republic.
