That’s Right Nate

Thoughts from a right thinker.

We Will Rebuild It

with 6 comments

reagansghost1This afternoon as I was wallowing in self-pity I had a dream or an apparition or a visitation.  I’m not really sure what happened, but I was visited by the ghost of Ronald Reagan.

“Whose there”, I said as I wiped the sleep out of my eyes.

“Who do you think?  Its Ronald Reagan and its about time you pull yourself up by your own bootstraps and save your party,” he said.

“Gipper?” I asked

“Well its not John Anderson.  Its morning in America and you’re in bed,” he told me.

“But..Obama won,” I said sullenly

“Well, yes he did.  You know if you locked two boys into rooms filled with horse manure,” he started.

“…Why would you do that,” I interrupted.

“Let me finish,” he said annoyed, “The pessimist would start crying, the optimist would start digging cause he knows there’s a horse in there somewhere.”

“So..I should be an optimist?” I asked

“I always was,” he said offering me a jelly bean.

“Thanks Ronald Reagan,” I said

“No, thank you and brave Americans like you.  Together we can build this party into what it once was.  I’ll need you to hold those Democrats’ feet to the fire.  That’s something only you can do Nate,” he told me.

“Am I going to be visited by 2 more spirits?” I asked

“Now isn’t that just like a liberal to send 3 people to do the job when one person is plenty,” he laughed and then he was gone.

I don’t know what happened, but I’m determined to go with what works for us.  I’ve made a 5 point plan we’re going to emphasize over the next 4 years as we rebuild:

1. Referring to people by their job like Joe the Plumber or Mike the Podiatrist.

2. Referring to our opponents by their middle name constantly.

3. Stop pronouncing the letter G.

4. Try to divide the country into Americans and unamericans.

5. Switch strategy every week.

You’ll see–it’ll all be right.

  2. I think that’s more a testament to the kind of man Ronald Reagan was and his willingness to go anywhere for conservative causes even in the afterlife.

  3. Well thats invariably the truth but no need to downplay it Nate, I dont think the word “chosen” would be inappropriate here. I’m not hearing about too many other conservative bloggers who’ve been personally visited by you know who
