Goofus: Whoah, I… hey, yeah, it’s great to see you.

What's neat about old public figures is that for every single damn one of them, there are receipts from the 1980s that will tell you if they had even the tiniest shred of character or bravery.

The US right: Hey, wouldn't it be cool if we were more like Hungary? Here's a documentary about how awesome Hungary is. Let's have CPAC in Hungary this year and have Hungary's government coach us on how to take over a country.
