Bush the Shiftless

I have not had a chance to check this out, but it has the ring of authenticity.

This was forwarded to me as a 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.'
It elevates my opinion of Reagan, confirms my opinion of George W (see Deserter for more!) and actually heightens my disdain for the Likudnik NeoCon New Republic.

17 August PS
Thought it may be too good to be true. Comment below sets it right.
