If You Have Nothing Nice to Say, Then You Have Nothing Relevant to Say

In these hyperbolic times, I like to remind myself of how much of a douche that Regan was.  The beginning of the credit bubble, Iran-Contra, and his wife’s dick-move on drugs (nice one Nancy, we won the war!)  Generally speaking, I have nothing nice to say about Reagan.  But even I yield to the phrase, “if you have nothing nice to say, then be vague.”  There are nice things to be said of Reagan.

Check out this post.  I am the anonymous commenter “Comment”.  I would have thought that, unanimously, people would have agreed with me.  Perhaps they only read the introductory phrase, but even that is suggestive of how they think.  Rather, I think that people who thumb-me-down are that much of downers.  They truly have nothing nice to say about the President, the Minority Leader, or the Speaker, and that, to me, is distressing.

Reagan was a dick, but he had the abeyance of “President”, and he was funny.  He especially was funny…  It upsets me that people today can’t even agree on a great photo, because they are so clandestine to their side.
