Even Reagan Doesn't Measure Up

Ironies abound in the worshipful embrace of Ronald Reagan by the Republicans who have taken over the party, but none is as ginormous as their demand that GOP candidates take tests to determine whether they are pure enough, which is to say right wing enough.

The irony, of course, is that the pragmatic Reagan could never have passed such a test and would have been exiled. By one count, The Gipper would have scored satisfactorily on only six of the 10 points on one right-wing checklist.
