This comes from www.wonkette.com about the ongoing Reagan coverage. Personally, I'm not sure how much is too much when it comes to stuff like this. I watched the 60 Minutes coverage on Sunday and must say that I completely felt for Nancy Reagan and the hell she has endured for the last 10 years. Truly heartbreaking. Now, on to Wonkette.
"So glad that the nets are going wall-to-wall with the Reagan stuff for the fourth consecutive day. Otherwise we might forget that he's dead. At this point, however, the strain of keeping the story alive is starting to show. Fox, for instance, has run out of famous Reagan fanatics; this morning they interviewed one of the soldiers guarding the president's casket.
Fox: Did you ever meet Reagan?
Marine (who appears to be approximately 18 years old): Uh, no, sir.
Fox: How much of an honor is it to be doing this duty?
Marine: It's a great honor."
Thank God for the 24-hour news cycle.
