Direct quote from the just published REAGAN DIARIES.
The entry is dated May 17, 1986.
'A moment I’ve been dreading. George brought his ne’re-do-well son around this morning and asked me to find the kid a job. Not the political one who lives in Florida. The one who hangs around here all the time looking shiftless. This so-called kid is already almost 40 and has never had a real job. Maybe I’ll call Kinsley over at The New Republic and see if they’ll hire him as a contributing editor or something. That looks like easy work.’
Thanks to Tyger for this!
Later: And thanks also to Tyger for this CORRECTION: This it seems, is not from Reagan’s diaries at all. But from My Lunch With Reagan, by Michael Kinsley. Doh!
WHAT A PITY!
