Slate’s Homepage: 3 For 3

The three top articles at Slate: “Reagan’s Stupidity” by Christopher Hitchens, “How He Wrecked the GOP” by Timothy Noah and “How He Misunderstood Freedom” by William Saletan.

Funny stuff, considering that Christopher Hitchens is one of the leading defenders of a Reaganite war lead by a Republican president most liberals deride as a moron (including Slate’s editor); that Republicans now control the House, the Senate and the White House (and that they even gained seats in an off-year election); and that even Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton have credited Reagan with winning the Cold War and bringing a majority of mankind into the sunny uplands of liberty.
