Quote of the Day

September 4, 2007

“A moment I’ve been dreading. George [Bush] brought his ne’re-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I’ll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they’ll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work.”

— Ronald Reagan in his recently published diaries, entry of May 17, 1986.

I wish I could verify this.

Edit: The quote is a joke by Michael Kinsley, written in an article titled “My Lunch with Reagan” by in the New Republic (vol. 237, issue 1, 7/2/07).
