Even a stopped clock is right twice each day

Ron Reagan is dumber than a bag of hair.  Of this there is no doubt.  But the other night, when Deadeye left the room, leaving the TV tuned to CNN Headline News (She has this habit of leaving me alone with HLN.  I don't like it.  I can feel my IQ dropping by the second.), I caught the following comments from Mr. Reagan in an exchange with Joy Behar and insipid uber-leftist Janeane Garofalo.
GAROFALO: I would hope so, but there should had been regulation. You know, I mean, there should had been regulatory reform as he came into office.

BEHAR: When he came into office.


BEHAR: Yeah. Why didn’t, Ron, why didn`t he do that?

REAGAN: Well, because he`s a corporatist like all our other Presidents have been for a long, long time. That`s what`s being revealed here. Barack Obama is just as much a corporatist as George H.W. – or George W. Bush was. He`s a little less obvious about it. I think maybe his heart isn’t quite as in it.
I'm impressed. He gets it that Il Duce is the same kind of corporatist tool that King George the Dim and his predecessors were.

Of course, then he turns around and says some of the ass-stupidest nonsense ever uttered.
REAGAN: He`s not an actual oil man himself, but listen, he`s between a rock and a hard place here. He just proposed that we open up a lot of our coastline to deepwater drilling here, to offshore drilling. Completely ignoring the fact that any dependence on oil by America is dependence on foreign oil. That`s the thing that I think a lot of people don`t understand here.
Exqueeze me? Oil produced by America is dependence on foreign oil?  Do you even listen to yourself?

Oh well.  At least he gets that we're being ruled over by plundering Corporatists.  I suppose that counts for something, right?
