Reagan Rides Again

When Analogies Fail: Freedom’s Ramparts Or Iron Curtain?

Old Reliable, Ronald Reagan, has been summened once more to freedom’s cause.  Or something.

Wonkette brings us this playful image from a Boston Teabag rally, and we can only speculate where the poster’s creator was coming from.

It appears that the Berlin Wall, having not yet crumbled at the sound of Reagan’s mighty voice, stands between Big Government and The People.

But since government derives its powers from the People, or God in fringey-er precincts, couldn’t The People sort of walk around the wall?

And wasn’t the Berlin problem that unhappy people were trapped on their side of the wall with an unfortunate government, not separated?
