#rsrh This just made me a little sad.

Via Pejman Yousefzadeh comes word of the subtle humiliation of Michael Dukakis:

Dukakis, who said in a telephone interview that he “popped in” to the White House while on a trip here several weeks ago, said he told aides to President Obama that Republicans “want to go back and do exactly what got us in this mess in the first place.”


Asked if the White House aides were receptive, he said, “I think they certainly get it.” He declined to name the aides he met at the White House.

“Aides.” A man runs for President, you’d think that he’d be able to meet at least a Cabinet-level official. Strike that: this is one reason why we have the office of the Vice President. Yeah, yeah, I know, I should be pleased that this White House is as ungracious as ever to its base – and everybody else, really. It’s just that… well, I was a Democrat once. Dukakis was my first Presidential vote. While I’m grateful now that he lost (and a bit embarrassed about my vote), that doesn’t mean that I necessarily enjoy seeing him get casually urinated on like this by the current administration…

    You’re not alone in your embarrassment. I once voted for John Anderson over Ronald Reagan.

    Fortunately, I got better.

  • Jeff Weimer says:

    I ALMOST voted for Dukakis. I considered myself a Democrat even tho I liked Reagan (too young to vote for him, irritated my mother no no end), but was talked out of it. You see, I had just joined the Navy and a fellow sailor set me straight.

    I just waited until 1992 to make my mistake. That never happened again.

    I can sympathize with you, Moe. I committed my share of youthful indiscretions… ‘course, that didn’t include voting Democrat…
    My weakness was always…umm, shall we say… **scandalous** women 😉 Come to think about it, the distinction may be only a matter of proportion.
