Yeah, the GOP Reagan-worship is truly amazing in its cognitive dissonance. All during the Bush admin, they kept screaming that asking the president to negotiate with "our enemies" was abhorrent, in spite of the fact that Reagan did so with the Soviets (which also caused a right-wing freakout). They've changed what they think happened (their god "wavering" by daring to work on treaties with commies) to some comic-book fantasy where Reagan went in with the threat of nukes and made the Soviet Union collapse by yelling FUS RO DAH at it.
This is what happens when you deify someone. They no longer remember Ronald Reagan as a pragmatic politician, but instead as the mythical embodiment of their current ideology.
They do the same damned thing with the national founders, which is how we end up having such a schizophrenic relationship with our own history.

I just went to the store to get some bananas. They were all green, and I was really looking for ripe yellow so I could slice them onto some bread with peanut butter on it. I decided that I could still have this concoction with green bananas, but I knew then and know now, as I eat it while watching this video, that yellow would have been more delicious. Ah, compromise. My banana principles shatter in another cold blistering morning.
That last sentence was almost a haiku.

Is it really necessary to have this many tampon commercials at POETV at the same time?

There was a study done a while ago that showed when certain people are presented with irrefutable facts that contradict their current thinking, they tend to move even further to the lie.
Yep. Debating isn't about being right; it's about being socially dominant. If you're beating someone in a debate, their instinct isn't to change their mind and accept your views, it's to debate their own side HARDER.
in common parlance this is now called 'doubling down'.

Reagan also didn't have his political career crushed like a rabbit turd under a brick, so you might owe him an apology.
