When your father was a piece of shit right-wing thug, I would find it hard to believe that he wouldn't support a dumbass like Palin. Pam Geller was debating Ron Reagan and the topic of his father came up.
Reagan: Because she doesn't have a thought in her head. That's why.
Geller: That's what they said about your father.
Again, Pam is right on the money except she's not saying that Reagan didn't have a thought in his head, she's saying we did, which is true. Conservatism is built on the dumbing down of society and even the so-called "intellectuals" are complicit in this. If you write 10 pages telling someone to pick their nose versus someone who says "pick your nose", you're both telling someone to pick their nose, period. Conservatism is anti-intellectual, neither Palin nor Reagan had a thought in their head even if one was "smarter" than the other.
As for Ron, if he continues to defend his fascist father, I don't think he has a place on the liberal side. The entire right-wing movement worships Ronald Reagan and he is most responsible for the fruits of the movement including the destruction of the middle class and organized labor. Ron reminds me of Luke Skywalker knowing his dad is Darth Vader, except he never "saved" his dad from himself like Luke did.
As for Pam Geller:
She came to lead the next revolution.
