“Retweet if you want this #shutdown to end,” a tweet bearing the president’s name impotently went out on Wednesday. At Ricochet, Rob Long quipped in response, “From ‘Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall’ to this, in 5 short presidencies.”
And now, back again:
A line from Reagan’s Brandenburg Gate speech: “Today I say, as long as the gate is closed, as long as this scar of a wall is permitted to stand, it is not the German question alone that remains open, but the question of freedom for all mankind.”
Replace “German” with “park.”
Heh — it’s schadenfreudelicious.
(Speaking of schadenfreude, Ted Cruz was one of the retweeters of the above item from Tweet Force One.)
