The day is far from over, but here's my nomination for retarded headline of the day:
Yeah, I guess Obama told him! It doesn't get much bolder than defying a man who has been dead for nine years.
In the mythology of the so-called reality-based community, the evil Reagan tore out those solar panels because he couldn't stand the thought of fossil fuels not being burned and he wanted the whole world to choke on the fumes and...Evil! Reagan was evil, evil, evil!
The truth is much simpler, as the New York Times reported on August 24, 1986:
The Reagan Administration says it will not replace a solar water-heating system that was installed in the White House in the Carter Administration.
The panels of the system had been dismantled to fix the roof underneath. Dale A. Petroskey, a White House spokesman, said Friday, ''Putting them back up would be very unwise, based on cost.''
Not that the truth matters to people who are completely blinded by their own hate.
