I was going to ignore Andrea Mitchell’s vapid, stupid, and just weird assertion that Republicans now are somehow wrong for hanging on to the heroic legacy of a great Republican president. I mean, this is Andrea Mitchell we’re talking about. When was the last time she had a clue? I honestly can’t remember.

But now, pace Mitchell, here comes Eugene Robinson to say pretty much the same thing: Today’s Republicans would regard Reagan as something less than an orthodox conservative. Riiiiight.

Here’s what’s going on.  Liberals in the media have surrendered to Ronaldus Magnus. They’ve surrendered to him. They called Reagan a radical back in the day. They fretted that his election would trigger world war with the Soviets. They believed and said every bad thing about Reagan then that they say about conservatives now. And none of what they said or did mattered at all. Reagan defeated them, and his record still defeats them now.

So they’ve surrendered, and are trying to rip him out of the conservative movement’s hands.
