    how could anyone be conned by Reagan?  These "Reagan Democrats", WTF?  I'd hate to see how bad they get taken when they shop for a used car.

    I do understand that for most Reagan-Democrats, Reagan was about race.  They hated the democratic party for supporting civil rights and along came Reagan with his bullshit about welfare queens.  That much makes sense.  But Reagan also conned plenty of people who were not racists, and those cases just make you shake your head in disbelief.

      at the time, more women were going into the workplace and a lot of otherwise sane men were up in arms about having to compete with them for pay and promotions.

      Affirmative Action got them really upset.
