Californians are channeling Ronald Reagan to their desparate cause of stopping the electoral college from selecting Donald Trump to be the president.
Danny Feingold of Alternet recently posted up his fantasy conversation with a reincarnated Ronald Reagan. In his delusionary conversation, the leftist blogger convinces the dead president to give him a quote to share with the electors.
The evening before the Electoral College would gather for perhaps that institution’s most consequential vote in American history, I dreamed I was driving up the 118 Freeway toward Simi Valley. My destination: the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library, located just a few miles from my boyhood home.
In my dream, I had come not to browse the collections but to search for an answer that could never be found in presidential documents: What would Reagan advise the Electoral College to do on Dec. 19, 2016?
I sat on a hill overlooking the vast expanse of Los Angeles’ endless suburbia. A familiar voice greeted me.
“Quite a night, isn’t it?”
“Yes it is, Mr. President,” I said. “I came here hoping to clear something up.”
“What’s that, son?”
