David Broder Still Doesn’t Understand Ronald Reagan

I interrupt my vacation to take note of these howlers in David Broder’s column in yesterday’s Washington Post:  President Reagan’s appointment of Anthony Kennedy to the Supreme Court “turned out to be successful beyond Reagan’s wildest dreams.”  Kennedy has “fulfill[ed] the expectations that Reagan and others had for him from the start.”  “Kennedy was exactly what Reagan thought” he was.  Absurd.
