Rall is at it again

Political cartoonist Ted Rall's comment that the late President Ronald Reagan is "turning crispy brown right about now" provoked a reaction that crashed his Web site for at least 24 hours after the remark was posted on the Drudge Report.
"I think most people view the president as a fair target," Mr. Rall said yesterday in an interview. "Reagan was a public figure, and he was an idiot. And if he were around and lucid, he would probably say that it comes with the territory."

I agree with Rall that the president is a fair target but, the man just died Saturday and his wife of 50 years is still in mourning. A little bit of class goes a long way. Oh wait, we're talking about an idiot, I almost forgot.
