"A moment I've been dreading. George brought his ne're-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I'll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they'll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work."

-- Ronald Reagan in his recently published diaries, May 17, 1986.

This has been going around the internet - it was published in a kos diary today. It is NOT from the Reagan diaries. It's something that Kinsley made up as a joke when the diary came out. It's pretty funny, but what isn't funny is how it's spreading like wildfire...I was fooled by it at first, but I'd like to make sure others don't get fooled...
