Zombie Reagan Brought Back From the Grave to Lead Republican Party: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-02-11 at 10.45.10 AM

A delicious slice of satire brought to you by The Onion

“Michael Steele was a good attempt at finding a new kind of face for the party, so was Bobby Jindal. But in the end, they just didn’t represent Republican ideals as well as a 100-year-old dead man”

  1. Funny and apt comparison.

    Ummm... Is this old tho? Cuz Michael Steele was RNC chairman several years ago; Reince Priebus was already the chairman in the 2012 elections. And it mentioned Charlie Crist as governor; Rick Scott took over in 2011.

  2. Reagan would also be 103, not 100. It is from The Onion's Archives, so yeah, it's old. But still pretty funny and appropriate today.

  3. Ossor, yes this is an old video. I remember seeing it a few years ago. Still funny though.

  4. Nothing "mean-spirited" about this. Nope, not a bit.

  5. Normally I'm all over The Onion's satire, this just feels tacky and creepy...

  6. I could not watch the video, as it's lead photo is ugly and sick. I assume it is another mockery of Pres. Reagan. As a gay conservative man I find the gesture offensive and not necessary. Please do not disparage Republicans in a knee-jerk fashion as many in the GOP are actually kind and welcoming of LGBT persons. We should not be defined by political party but by our individual characters.

  7. Having lived through the reagan years ... he pretty much was like that............

  8. Okay, Anthony. That's great, so when do you think the GOP's going to realize how gay-friendly, like you somehow know they are, and stop blockading anything remotely gay-friendly? Hmmm?

    Oh, and while we're at it, when are they going to realize how pro-woman, pro-worker, and pro-immigration reform they are too? I know its in their black little hearts somewhere. Gee, gosh, they sure are misunderstood!

  9. Travis,
    Pro-women: GOP would save millions of unborn girls.
    Pro-immigration: GOP favors immigration reform but need to secure borders first. See Marco Rubio.
    Pro worker: GOP wants to roll back ObamaCare.

  10. This is disrespectful to the memory of Ronald Reagan. I LOVE IT!!

  11. Anthony:
    You forgot one thing.
    GOP is also pro-gay. They think you should marry a woman assuming you are gay.

  12. So funny to see butthurt Repugs crying about people making fun of St. Reagan, who ruined this country by driving it into corporate ownership.

  13. Might I also add Pro-Sense of Humor to the list? Jeez.

  15. Anthony: Why is every anti-gay legislation started by Republicans? Why do they spend so much time and money against you? Indiana, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, etc.

  16. Zombie Reagan would be perfect for the GOP considering none of them have any brains to eat anyway.

  17. Me thinks Anthony is about 19 years old....
    (and has a lot of learning and growing up to do).

  18. Best of all, GOP is also pro-education. They produced every year millions of Anthonys who vote against their own interests.

    Posted by: Simon | Feb 12, 2014 3:31:15 AM

  19. They also produced millions of Anthonys who think the Earth is 6000 years old.

  20. Gay Republicans are an oxymoron. Or just morons.

  21. He was pretty much a walking corpse when he was in office.

  22. "GOP would save millions of unborn girls."

    And then when those girls become women, treat them like broodmares, not allowing them to control their own bodies and forcing them to gestate.

  23. Ronald Reagan is personally responsible for the deaths of thousands of gay Americans for his inaction during the height of the AIDS crisis. I'm glad reanimation isn't possible because I would hate for anyone to pluck his unholy soul from hell to bring him back to life.
