Completely Unsurprising Endorsement of the Day

posted by on March 25 at 14:31 PM

Nancy Reagan will give her nod to John McCain.

Boring, I know. To make up for it, here’s test footage of an airbag suit:

Just say no, Nancy.

Actually, seeing how much she pushed for Stem Cell Research, it is surprising.

Who she?

Wasn't Nancy Reagan the First Lady who was President while Ronald Reagan had Alzheimer's disease?

You know, the one who relied on Astrologers to make decisions about which countries to bomb, kind of like McCain?

I want to see the airbag motorcyclist test out his nifty little contraption in shorts and flip-flops next time and see if he still thinks it's a success!

Nancy went on to say that it was a tough decision between McCain and Obama. In the end, she thought that although Obama had many fine qualities, he needed to gain more life experience. She anticipates voting for Obama in 2012.

@6. I anticipate that vote as well. Of course, Obama will be the incumbent then, so it'll be a different ball game.

Will in Seattle, you are running off half cocked as usual.

Ronald Regan was not diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease until years after his presidency. Nancy's consulatation with astrology only had to do with the preferred days for particular events on the President's schedule and had nothing to do with the President's decisions or policy.

@8 - the diagnosis and the incidence are not necessarily connected. The only actual proof of AD is slicing your brain into thin slices and staining it, FYI.

I stand by my statement.

That airbag suit would be cooler if he turned into the Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man on impact, or if the force of the collar inflation made his head pop off.

Shoulder Bags would be confusing.

@9: Well, Nancy also has confirmed in interviews that Ronnie did not even begin to show the slightest signs of the disease until years after they left the White House. So there!

Yeah, Nancy (unsurprisingly) started pushing for stem cell research once a problem that could potentially be served by it landed in her lap.

Not saying she's WRONG here...after all, I never would have started advocating and publicly speaking about organ donation and kidney disease education if my partner of 20 years hadn't died from it last year. It just wasn't on my radar before that. But don't think she did it out of the goodness of her heart. She started when it got personal, like many of us do.

That motorcycle airbag fucking rocks! Where can I get me one? Though that low side spill seemed to be at a pretty benign speed...

And Time Bomb, people who ride in shorts and flip flops should land squarely on a metal stand pipe, thus cleanly shearing off their genitals. That way I don't have to worry about them passing their self-evidently damaged chromosomes on to the next generation.

@10 wins. And it would be useful if you were riding in one of those Smart cars too.
