The legacy of Ronald Reagan is a third rail of conservative politics. Thou shall not question the Gipper! Per The Guardian, “Reagan is not just a name but an adjective connoting virtue and conservative ideological purity.” Count us as surprised, therefore, to see one of the pillars of conservative propaganda–Bill O’Reilly–raising questions about Reagan’s mental faculties and personal indiscretions in his new book Killing Reagan. Bill O’s book has sent old guard conservatives into a frenzy, leading to what one observer has called a “civil war” within the FOX News media empire. To see this ‘civil war’ in all its blazing glory, check out this scream fest between Bill O and George Will. Enjoy!
