Reagan Did Not Help

| | Comments (0)
In The Colbert Report's "The Word" segment Monday, Colbert mentioned Joe McCarthy "singehandedly mak[ing] a list of which Hollywood liberals we should get rid of." That got a laugh. Then the caption came up, "Well, Reagan Helped." Which got a bigger laugh, and some clapping.

Except, of course, there is no truth of any kind to it. Reagan testified about the problem of communism in Hollywood, but absolutely refused to name names, and it's pathetic that so many people don't know their history.

There should be an intelligence test to get into the audience for TDS and TCR. That joke, among educated people, would have bombed. Or maybe it's the writers who need intelligence testing ... ?
