On the other hand, he did blow up the Death Star

If you've been searching for a brief biography of Ronald Reagan that begins, "Everybody knew he was a dumbass," here it is.

To mention just one highlight that I had forgotten:

In his January 1987 testimony before the Tower Commission, President Reagan specifically acknowledged having approved the Iranian arms sales back in August 1985. Two weeks later he reversed himself, claiming that his prior statement was erroneous. Reading from his notes, Reagan fucked up when he read some of his stage directions aloud: "If the question comes up at the Tower Board meeting, you might want to say that you were surprised."
