…in Noonan’s bedside drawer, next to the lube (but I’m only guessing):
WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Police were searching on Wednesday for a vandal who damaged a bronze statue of Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II in the Polish city of Gdansk by cutting off one arm of the former U.S. president and stealing it.

Ilsa she-wolf of the Nazis Michelle Malkkkin said that The Kenyan was using children as props and it counted as child abuse?
(Petunia and Pals) If it’s Thursday, it must be Malkkkin. Today she says that the President is a Child Abuser. No, really.
…it of course triggered off a day of Wingnuttian outrage comparing the president’s use of children to Sadaam Hussein‘s, it’s never been done before, etc., etc., etc.
Yes it has:
Tonight is a tribute to Ronald Wilson Reagan, “the greatest president of the last half of the last century, maybe the greatest president ever.” — Peggington Noonington
“I reject a potted plant presidency. I’m here to do a job.”
–President Reagan picking up his newest prop, an oversized pair of scissors, and cutting a big credit card labeled, “CONGRESSIONAL EXCESS.”
So let’s celebrate by attacking the Kenyan Usurper Hawaiian Devil Baby!
Hey guys, do you remember when Saint Ronnie won the Indy 500? Me Neither! Because it didn’t happen. Well, anyway, someone bolted onto the nose of his race car the centennial seal of Ronnie, the most-blessed of all preznints, and won the race!
Politico’s Playbook email thingie tells us:
REAGAN CENTURY — “100th Running of Indianapolis 500 Won by Car Honoring the 100th Birthday of America’s 40th President, Ronald Reagan – Reagan Centennial Seal Affixed to Nose of Dan Wheldon’s Winning Car” – Ronald Reagan Centennial Celebration release: “As presidential candidate, Reagan drove the pace car in the 1976 Indianapolis 500. Ronald Reagan was a fan of auto racing, and established strong relationships with several major racing series. In 1984, he became the first sitting president to attend a NASCAR race. … A replica of the winning Indy car is now on display at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library in Simi Valley, Calif., through Oct. 23, 2011, as part of the exhibit ‘Start Your Engines.’”
And thus NASCAR became a political tool. The End.
If Mr. Reagan thinks he has to cut social spending to help right the economy, others might disagree, but he has earned the right to try. What he is not entitled to do is to cut spending for the poor and then claim that he is increasing it.
Saint Ronnie is asked about the perception that his administration helps the rich at the expense of the poor:
Oh, I’m concerned about it. It’s a political problem if people believe it, but there’s absolutely no truth in it.
