I was laughing hysterically at the title of this article – “Mondale on Obama, and how he could’ve beat Reagan” – because the very idea that President Obama could have had the chops to knock down the Gipper is hysterical. Then I actually read the article, and it was actually all about how Mondale thinks that he could have knocked down the Gipper. So I stopped laughing.
Why? Because Walter Mondale is 82 years old. When I am 82, if I am saying things like this it is my fond hope that others will show me the same forbearance that I am showing now.
