*** “Stand-Up Reagan”
Ah, the good ole days. That’s what this 40-minute video is all about--the President playfully snaring balloons on the convention stage, “Ron for King” pickets waving in the audience, “Ronnie” telling jokes about farmers and Russian peasants and how old he is: He quotes George Washington, but “I didn’t actually hear him say it”; “When I go in for my physical, they don’t ask my age; they just carbon date me.” This is a collection of the nicer moments of his stand-up career. Whatever your politics, this guy scored with a joke.
