Maybe it’s just that I have a miserable cold, but it really does feel like the entire Republican party is trying to re-litigate Iran-contra — not to mention Jerry Falwell’s “Moral Majority” and all the rest of the Reaganauts’ creepy, eliminationist policies at home and abroad. I’m too old to fight all these battles a second time, dammit!
Remember when Republicans made secret & illegal prisoner-release deals w Iran, a bunch of people were convicted, & GHW Bush pardoned them?

Anything on the agenda for the day that won’t make me feel like going back to bed and staying there till mid-October (or at least till tomato-plant-ordering season)?
